Lap swim, open swim, and other special swimming programs are available at the WRC pool.
Hornet Fitness programs are group sessions open to all WRC members. Sessions occur at varying times throughout the week at a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals at all fitness levels are welcome.
The WRC is open for “walk-in” recreation. During operating hours, the WRC welcomes students looking for fitness conditioning, lap and open swimming, as well as playing basketball or volleyball.
Intramural Sports are designed to give members a way to participate in organized sports on their schedule. Teams consist of men and women and are offered in tournament or league format.
Sport clubs gain recognition by the University, and focus on team participation in a sporting activity. The sport club program is student initiated and organized with an emphasis placed on participation.
Special programs promote health and wellness to our members and occur on a single day or over a brief period of time.
