Sports & Recreation
Recreation Programs offers many clubs and intramurals ranging from golf to Ultimate Frisbee. State-of-the-art cardiovascular and weight-training facilities are open to all students, as are all manner of exercise classes, from yoga to kickboxing.
Back this year, patrons can get FREE fitness orientations in the Fitness Room. These orientations will focus on 6-8 specific machines in targeted area – upper body, lower body, core, free weights, & cardio workouts – and can teach patrons to gain comfort with how to set up each machine and get a proper range of motion so that they can be more comfortable working out in the Fitness Room. See any of our friendly staff for more information or to be given an orientation or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment today!
Recreation plays an important role in our lives. In the university setting, where stress and deadlines are a daily occurrence, recreation opportunities provide a positive outlet for students, faculty and staff to practice healthy lifestyle choices.
Our goal is to offer students the opportunity to play the sports they love or want to try in a fun and friendly atmosphere. We offer competitive and recreational leagues for the majority of our sports, many tournaments and we host special events. In our leagues every team makes the playoffs and the champions win an IM Champion shirt!
PSU uses IM Leagues to manage intramural sports clubs, so that teams can manage and communicate with their members easily, schedules can be posted and shared, and students can easily see all the different intramural sports that are offered on campus.
If you are looking for positive adventure experiences on an outdoor or indoor ropes course, onindoor rock climbing, on a river, a lake, a trail, or a snow slope, the Outdoor Center has it all.

Have the desire, but not the skills or experience? No worries, we also offer outdoor adventure activities for the college community through our SOAR (Student Outdoor Adventure Recreation) program. We also offer community building adventure-based training to PSU groups and organizations or groups and organizations from the Plymouth community and broader region through our CALE (Community Adventure Learning Experiences) program.
