The Department of Campus Recreation, under the direction of the Director of Campus Recreation Erica Dixon, provides diverse opportunities for the NCCU campus. We also strive to expand and increase the knowledge of the recreational activities which foster healthy lifestyles, sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership. The Campus Recreation division is composed of six areas; Intramural Sports, Outdoor Recreation, Fitness and Wellness, Open Recreation Time, “Rec Stop”, Sport Clubs, and Special Events.
Intramural sports offer team, dual and individual sport leagues where participants compete for the coveted intramural champion t-shirt. You can organize your own team or utilize the free agent list. The Intramural Sports staff organizes the leagues, supervises play, monitors and tracks league standings, and organizes the tournaments; all you have to do is sign up and have a great time! Most sports are played in L.T. Walker Complex or the O’Kelly Riddick Field. We have sports that range from 5-on-5 basketball to flag football to soccer, if we don’t have it let us know and we will get it. There are also chances to go to extramural tournaments at other various institutions across the state and beyond. Campus Recreation is an Institutional member of NIRSA (National Intramural Recreation and Sports Association). All of the sport rules are governed by NIRSA.
The Outdoor Recreation portion of Campus Recreation is also a growing entity on campus. Currently we are expanding offerings of a one-day trips in various areas such a skiing trips, white water rafting, fishing and horseback riding. All trip ideas will be considered including overnight, weekend and spring break.
Open recreation takes place in the L.T. Walker Complex when there are not any intramural activities taking place. It is open to all students, faculty and staff to participate.
The “Rec Stop” is an area located on the ground floor of the L.T. Walker Complex. The casual atmosphere allows play cards, ping pong, board games or just visit with friends. The “Rec Stop” offers a variety of recreational activities which students may utilize. All you need to be a part of the action is your student I.D. and a good attitude.
A sport club is a campus group activity that provides recreation, competition and/or instruction. All clubs are student run and are a part of the Organization Council. Any sport will be taken into consideration to be a sport club. Please contact Erica Dixon at 919-530-6130 for any questions about the sport club program.
