The Department of Campus Recreation coordinates many programs for the St. Mary’s community, including intramural sports, aquatics, fitness and wellness programs, sport clubs, informal open recreation, special events, and equipment check out.

Intramural Sports

Intramurals are open to current St. Mary’s University students, faculty and staff, and it is easy to get involved. For team sports, it is best to put a team together with people you know from classes, residence halls, campus organizations, etc. If you want to play and do not have a team, free agents meetings are held for all major sports to create teams. This is a great way to meet new people, make new friends and enjoy your college experience. Individual tournaments are also offered to test your skills.
