The Department of Athletics & Recreation

Spring Hill College offers its students opportunities for a healthy lifestyle through varsity athletics, intramural activities, club sports, and various fitness classes. The Arthur R. Outlaw Recreation Center serves as the primary workout facility, with two racquetball courts, a walk/run track, an aerobics room and the college’s weight room, which features several cardiovascular machines, free weights and universal equipment. Its 1500 seat arena hosts the men’s and women’s basketball, and volleyball teams.

The college’s intramural program is open to all students, faculty and staff and features competitive and non-competitive activities. Flag football, sand volleyball, soccer and basketball have become very competitive; however, other activities such as card games, walleyball, and dodge ball, are equally enjoyed.

Other opportunities for students include participation in club sports and daily fitness classes. Rugby, ultimate frisbee, yoga, step aerobics and the newly formed hip-hop classes are all sponsored activi-ties due to student interest.
