Sports and sporting facilities on campus are organized by the Athletics, Sports, and Recreational Department. Currently the campus supports an intramural program consisting of basketball, volleyball, soccer, flag-football, badminton, tennis, street hockey, and developing softball and cricket tournaments. We also support several SGU Rep teams that participate in community-based competitions such as cricket, soccer, netball, and basketball. For those with less competitive interests, there are a plethora of regular pick-up events that take place on the athletic field and court facilities. In addition to the above mentioned core activities, the campus supports aerobics classes, yoga, lacrosse, martial arts, Ultimate Frisbee, a weight room, and a small cardio center. Some students choose to join one of the two well equipped nearby private gyms because the weightroom and cardio center on campus are heavily used at peak times. There are also community-based activities available such as scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, cross country running, and hiking.
The 17,000 square-foot Student Center houses a cafeteria and food court, offices for student organizations, a fitness center, and a branch of the local bank. An open-air veranda extends from the cafeteria and overlooks the SGU campus and a variety of athletic fields used by the students.
The gym is a popular destination for students at SGU. It is conveniently located in the Student Center near the food court and bank. The area is stocked with free weights and a selection of Hammer Strength, cabled selector machines, and everything a well-balanced strength program requires. In addition to the strength equipment, there is an Aerobics Center with a growing selection of cardio equipment, such as ellipticals, rowers, life cycles, and a recumbent cycle.
There are numerous fitness classes organized in the aerobics center including step aerobics, kickboxing, dance, martial arts, and yoga. If you wish to take part or organize a new event, the Athletics, Sports, and Recreation Department staff are more than willing to try to accommodate you and your interests.
