Carolina also encourages students of all talent levels to push themselves athletically, for the fun as well as the exercise. While our varsity-level sports are highly competitive, we do offer open try-outs. You may also try out for one of the 53 club sports that we offer. The club sports are student-run and range from recreational to highly competitive programs. Nearly 10% of the student body is part of a club sport.
As a Carolina student, you also have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of intramural sports, which include Wallyball and Innertube H2O Basketball, Softball and Floor Hockey, Indoor Soccer and Badminton, Texas Hold ’Em and more!
