Intramural sports involve tournaments and leagues that students participate in playing against other University of Southern Maine student on campus. Club sports offer students the ability to practice 2-3 times a week, compete against teams from other universities, and travel on regional and national levels to compete. Students can and are encouraged to participate in both intramurals and club sports!

Intramurals are a great option for students who want to participate in a variety of different leagues and learn new sports. Club Teams are a great option for students who want to participate in a sport at a competitive level, but not at the commitment or competitiveness level as an NCAA athletics team.
