Feed Your Competitive Spirit

Competitive and instructional sport clubs provide the opportunities to continue to compete at a high level against fellow institutions in the desired sports without the stringent practice and competition schedules associated with intercollegiate competition.

Each competitive and instructional club offers its own unique aspects that add to the collegiate athletic experience and provide valuable opportunities to connect with individuals from other areas of the country and the world in a fun and safe supportive environment which Ithaca College is committed to providing to its students.

Breakdown of Competitive and Semi-Competitive Sport Clubs

Included among the traditional competitive sport clubs are Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Lacrosse, Rugby, Soccer, and Volleyball as well as Softball, Field Hockey, Ice Hockey, etc. Less traditional sports offered are Equestrian, Ski Team, Men's and Women's Ultimate Frisbee.
