This month in Campus Rec: Sign up for winter intramurals and fitness classes; Couch to 5K training; Facility access reminders


As students return from Winter Break, the sport programs team in Campus Recreation is busy gearing up for one of the most popular seasons of intramural competition. Basketball season runs from Jan. 21 through Feb. 18 and always ranks among Clemson’s most favorite indoor sports with students. Registration is open through IM Leagues from Jan. 15-18. Teams will be grouped into two different men’s, women’s and co-ed divisions.

A three-point contest will be held prior to the start of basketball season as a tuneup for interested participants. To register, students must sign in through IM Leagues between Jan. 10-15. The contest will take place on Jan. 16.

In addition, badminton is open for team registration in the same portal from Jan. 15-18. An open doubles season is scheduled to run from Jan. 21 through Feb. 18.

More information on sport programs is available on Campus Rec’s website and in the participant handbook.


Throughout the Fall semester, Campus Rec facilities served as a hub for student activity. With over 70 weekly classes offered, group fitness is one of most accessible and popular recreational options among students. In total, group fitness classes saw attendance of nearly 24,000 between Swann Fitness Center and Douthit Hills Fitness Center. Classes open for the Spring semester next week, but students are encouraged to act fast as spots tend to fill up very quickly. Plan ahead by registering 23 hours before the scheduled start time for your preferred group fitness or F45 class. Visit the group fitness home page for more information.


Campus Rec hosts its annual Puppies and Patriots 5K on Saturday, March 9. In preparation for this exciting event — held on Clemson’s campus — join Campus Rec staff for twice-a-week training beginning Jan. 16 as part of a Couch to 5K program. Registration is $50 for the training, which includes automatic entry for the 5K.

Registration is open to a limited number of participants through the Campus Rec website. Participants will meet in the lobby of Fike Recreation Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 a.m.


As a general reminder, facilities are limited to students who have paid the Campus Rec fee as part of their University bill.
