Athletics and Recreation
Are you interested in challenging yourself outside the classroom?
The Clark Athletics and Recreation Department mirrors Clark's academic opportunity in that the entire Clark community strives for excellence. By joining one of our highly competitive intercollegiate athletics programs or by enjoying one of our robust recreational offerings, there is ample opportunity to be active, compete, excel and challenge yourself. Therefore, if you would like to take part and raise your own game, we encourage you to connect with Clark Athletics and Recreation.
Clark varsity student-athletes play in one of the most competitive collegiate athletic conferences in the country. By rising to the challenge and becoming a member of one of our 17 intercollegiate athletic teams, you will have the chance to compete against some of the toughest college programs in New England, while also enhancing the social and academic aspects of your college experience. For those of you interested in learning more about our NCAA Division III varsity programs, please use our departmental directory to contact a head coach.
Clark's intramural program gives you the opportunity to compete and have fun without the demands of varsity athletics. Approximately half of the student body participates in the intramural program, which also encourages participation by Clark's faculty, staff and alumni. Intramural competitions range from league-team competition to individual tournaments to short-term and weekend events. Activities are structured in a variety of ways, including by level of competition and gender. Ultimate Frisbee, floor hockey, volleyball, basketball, soccer and softball are among some of Clark's intramural sports. Learn more about intramural sports at Clark.
Clark student groups run numerous club sports ranging from Candelas—a club for Salsa dance lessons—to the Snowboarding Club, Equestrian Club, Outdoor Club, Tae Kwon Do Club and Ultimate Frisbee Club. View a list of Clark's club sports.
