Recreational sports

The recreational sports program provides opportunities for the Earlham community to engage in physical activities to create healthy lifestyle habits. It seeks to offer a chance for all members of the College community to more fully enjoy their recreational leisure time, and in so doing to benefit physically, emotionally, psychologically and socially. The recreational sports program is voluntary, and a desire to participate is of greater importance than skill level. It also offers the opportunity to participate in a sport without the time commitment of a varsity team.

Registration and Waiver of Liability

For any activity, all teams are required to be composed of Earlham College students, faculty or alum. All recreational sport events are co-ed. The teams may change from sport to sport. Team rosters which change from sport to sport encourage people to branch out and have contact with new faces. Suggested groups to form recreational sports teams are: dorms, halls, houses, majors and special interest groups.

To participate in recreational sports, an individual without a selected team may register as a free agent.
