What facilities are available through Campus Recreation?

The Auburn Recreation and Wellness center was built with the needs of the students in mind. When planning the new facility, the goal was to provide them with the best possible tools to better their overall health and wellness. The result was a facility that is uniquely Auburn.

The heart of the facility is the 1/3-mile corkscrew track that winds through the building like a lifeline, delivering students and energy to the 100+ cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights around the Recreation and Wellness Center.

Other traditional recreational opportunities to engage members and keep them active, include  group fitness classes, Auburn Outdoors, a leisure pool, Intramural and Club Sports, basketball, volleyball, badminton, a golf simulator, and indoor soccer courts.

What is a Club Sport?

A Club Sport is an athletic sport in which a college sponsors one team for recreational or competitive purposes (not through the NCAA, but possibly through other leagues).

Club Sports at Auburn University are student organizations designed to promote good sportsmanship, skills development and athletic competition. Clubs can be competitive, recreational, or instructional in nature, and are not affilitated with the NCAA.

What is the difference between Club Sports and Intramural Sports?

Intramural Sports are sport competitions played between teams or individuals that are formed from the university community. Team’s play each other for a period of time, followed by a single elimination tournament. 

Club Sports is more specialized. Clubs are formed by groups of students and often compete with other sports clubs from other universities. Club Sports normally have dedicated practice times and seasons that are usually much longer than Intramural Sports. Intramural Sports competes within the university and Club Sports competes outside the university.
