Campus Recreation consists of five programs: Intramurals, Extramurals, Fitness, Special Events, and Sport Clubs. Intramurals are divided into League Intramurals (weekly scheduled games) and Tournament Intramurals (compete in a one or two day format). Our Extramural Program sends our intramural champions in various sports to compete against other university intramural champions in a state or regional tournament. The Fitness Program (non-credit) offers different classes to meet the needs of the student body. Classes offered include, but are not limited to: Pilates, Martial Arts, Hip-Hop, and Cardio Kick. Special Events include the Opening Days Grass Volleyball Tournament and Dorm Wars -- our end of the year competition in which each residence hall competes against each other in various events to crown a campus champion. Finally our Sport Club Program enables men and women to participate in regional and intercollegiate activities, organized by students for students, outside the athletic department. Currently, Willamette University officially recognizes the following sport clubs: Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Swing Dance, Ultimate Frisbee, Dance Team, Cheer Squad, Jujitsu, Ski and Snowboard, Bowling, Educated Climbing Bums, Surfahs, and Kickball.
A variety of events each semester accommodate the interests of students, staff, faculty, the professional schools, and TIUA. Activities are selected to meet the needs and competitive interests while maintaining the integrity and spirit of the games. With over one-half of the campus population participating in IM’s, the intramural program provides opportunities for men, women and co-ed divisions in the following activities: flag football, outdoor soccer, indoor soccer, volleyball, half-court and full-court basketball, racquetball, tennis, ultimate frisbee, and kickball. The intramural program also schedules more than 20 different tournaments and special events to complement the league activities each academic year.
