Fitness-at-a-glance: Which path should you take?

They all sound fun, but only you know if you belong independently working out on the treadmill, playing on the women's varsity hockey team (or in the stands cheering them on), clearing your head during a game of intramural dodgeball, or river-side competing on the club fly fishing team. Here's the break-down:

Varsity

Varsity Athletics at UVM compete at the Division I level in the NCAA. The highly competitive 8 men's teams and 10 women's teams draw raucous and supportive crowds.

Campus Recreation and Intramural Sports

We are your gym on campus including a fitness center equipped with over 150+ cardiovascular machines. Participate in our intramural sports, group fitness classes and a wide range of classes for academic credit (listed as PEAC classes in the UVM Catalogue). From broomball to Zumba, scuba diving to yoga — Campus Recreation and the UVM Athletic facilities hold unlimited possibilities to explore fitness — wherever your interests lie.

Club sports

Sports clubs at UVM might surprise you at the level of competition available with many teams competing nationally against other colleges. Both beginners and seasoned athletes are encouraged to play.
