I love the Sports Center. Its clean, cool, and up to date. The sports center is open from 7-12am on weekdays and 9pm on weekends. The center has a cardio room, two weight rooms, a pool, a main gym, two rec gyms, dance studios, a multipurpose room, and a number of racquet ball rooms. Outdoors there are tennis courts, a soccer/field hockey/ lacrosse field, a baseball field, and a whole lot of green for just about anything. So basically there are heaps of ways to make use of the sports center and anyone, athlete or not, at any time can use any part of the center. Students can also borrow equipment from the center at any time.
Skidmore has both intramural sports and club sports. Both of which are heaps of fun. All the fun and excitment of being on a sports team without the long distance traveling and pressure of being an all star. Some of these sports include volleyball, raquetball, basketball, softball, tennis, and football. Joining an intramurals sports team is actually really popular on our campus. Students who join get really into the game, making uniforms and inviting friends to watch. I have played intramurals tennis and had a great time and I have only seen and heard great things from other intramural sports teams.
Joining an intramural sport is something I would totally recommend. Its fun and a great way to meet people.
