Recreational Sports


The university has made the decision to close the Recreation Center effective immediately until further notice. In addition, all programming (including club sport travel and intramural sport programming) is cancelled for the remainder of the semester as well. 

While we cannot be with you in person, our fitness programming will continue with FREE virtual group fitness classes, which you can find via our Quarantine Wellness Kit tab, located in our left navigation. All live classes are held via Zoom, and our recorded classes are housed on the Quarantine Wellness Kit site if you are looking for a specific class, or couldn't make the live class. 

During this time, it is very important that we practice the promotion of social distancing and rely on the advice of health experts, thus, the Department of Recreational Sports' professional staff will be working remotely from their homes from 8:30am EST until 5:00pm EST each business day until further notice. If you need assistance please send an email to the professional staff member you are trying to reach, or call their office phone, as all office calls are being forwarded to our home offices. Feel free to leave a message, we will be checking our voicemail and email regularly.


Recreational Sports emphasizes belonging, leadership and wellbeing while providing the Xavier students and community with the finest programs, services, facilities and equipment with a goal to support and foster a lifelong appreciation of body, mind and spirit.
