Club & Intramural Sports

Many GW students want to stay active while in college, but without the commitment to participation in a varsity sport. Club and intramural sports enable students to reap the health and wellness benefits of athletic competition (not to mention the fun), while remaining focused on academics and other aspects of life at GW.

Club Sports

Clubs Sports provide opportunities for students, faculty and staff who desire a more in-depth sports experience than is provided in intramural sports or informal recreation. The more intense focus of the club sports program blends the benefits of learning new skills, practicing regularly with club members and competing against other clubs. A number of GW’s club teams compete regionally and nationally. Club sports teams include:

  • Baseball
  • Basketball
