When living in the dorms, its great for your mental and social well being to grab some friends or make new ones from your dorm and hit the gym or play outside with dorm sports equipment! Your college campus will likely have an open field for you to walk to and play on. For a truly memorable experience we suggest playing with LED sports equipment at night! If weather or location isn’t permitting, there are also some fun mini versions of sports you can play in your dorm, or less active things like board games.

It is possible to play sports in college even if you are not on a college team. Many colleges and universities have recreational sports programs that allow students to participate in sports for fun and fitness, regardless of their skill level. These programs may include organized sports leagues, fitness classes, and other recreational activities.

In addition, some colleges and universities may have club sports teams that are not affiliated with the school’s varsity athletics program. These teams are typically made up of students who want to compete at a high level but may not meet the requirements to be on the varsity team. Club sports teams often compete against other colleges and universities in their region or across the country.

Overall, there are many opportunities for students to participate in sports in college, whether or not they are on a college team.
