Mission StatementCampus Recreation provides opportunities to thrive in the pursuit of well being through innovative staff, facilities, and programs.
Fitness and Recreation Center
The Fitness and Recreation Center (FRC) is located on the north end of campus, next to the Adams Center. Our facility offers a variety of cardio and weight machines, a functional training area, three multipurpose courts for basketball, volleyball or badminton, three group fitness classrooms, a squash court, and seven racquetball/handball courts.
Achieve your health and wellness goals through our many fitness programs and classes. Personal Trainers are on staff to meet your individual needs, while fitness classes, physical therapy presentations and healthy lifestyle classes are available in a group setting.
Lap swims, adult coached swims, American Red Cross lessons, inner tube water polo, and recreational swim times are just a few of the activities going on at the Grizzly Pool. The pool is part of your Campus Recreation membership and is open to the public for a fee.
Our picturesque nine-hole course located on South Avenue is perfect for beginners to experienced golfers alike. A driving range and chipping green offer a practice area for all abilities. In the off season, the golf course is a favorite place for cross-country skiing and sledding.
Intramural sports are popular for students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Choose from recreational to competitive leagues and become involved in a variety of activities. Soccer, softball, flag football, basketball, dodgeball, volleyball, inner tube water polo, tennis, golf, ultimate Frisbee and more are offered during Fall and Spring semesters. An annual 10k/5k run, which is open to the public, is also a popular and fun event in the Fall.
The world class Outdoor Program, located on the northeast side of the Fitness & Recreation Center, offers skill classes, trips, and equipment rental to satisfy your outdoor recreation adventures. You can also take advantage of their workbench and tools for bike maintenance or ski and snowboard tune-ups. The Outdoor Program also sponsors many presentations and films, including the prestigious Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour.
One of the first things you'll notice in the Fitness and Recreation Center is the state of the art Climbing Wall. Bouldering is available anytime the facility is open, while top-rope (belay) climbing is limited to specific hours when a wall monitor is on duty. Classes and workshops are held frequently at the wall so you can learn the basics or advance your skills.
