Hiram College Intramurals

Hiram offers a comprehensive Recreation and Club Sports program designed to enrich the quality of life for the students, faculty, and staff of the College by providing a broad based programming of sports, recreation and fitness activities for both men and women of all ability levels. 

The Department of Athletics, Exercise/Sport Science, and Recreation aim to accommodate this active participation by providing a wide variety of recreational activities. Recreational offerings include yoga, ultimate frisbee, kickball, dodgeball, as well as co-ed soccer and volleyball.

The Club Sport Program is designed to serve individual interests in different sports and recreational activities.

Sailing, women’s rugby, men’s volleyball, and martial arts clubs all actively participate in the College’s athletic scene.
