Sports and recreation

At VCU, Ram pride extends to teams in 16 NCAA sports, from baseball to soccer to tennis to volleyball to basketball. You may have heard about our VCU men’s basketball team last March. And April. They made quite a bit of noise and captured the nation’s attention with a historic Final Four run — a first for the university.

Stay active

If you’d rather be a part of the action, grab some friends and compete in cycling, flag football, soccer (indoor and outdoor), softball, volleyball, basketball, badminton, racquetball and tennis through VCU Recreational Sports.

If you want to stay fit, VCU’s recreation facilities – one on the Monroe Park Campus and one on the MCV Campus – offer your choice of exercise venue. The Cary Street Gym – our newest facility – features an 18,000-square-foot fitness center, two indoor pools, a 38-foot rock-climbing wall, two racquetball courts, a four-court gymnasium, and an indoor running track and cycling room.

More adventure

Go on a hike or take a skiing or white-water rafting trip through the Outdoor Adventure Program. VCU has so much to offer for our active students!
