The intercollegiate sports and recreation program offers a variety of activities for the experienced student-athlete, the fitness enthusiast, the intramural participant and the avid sports fan. The Department of Athletics and Recreation encourages active participation from all students, faculty and staff at SUNYIT.
The new Field House is equipped with a fitness center featuring a variety of treadmills, cross trainers, stair climbers and circuit training equipment, including free weights, which can benefit any fitness goals members of the SUNYIT community may have. The gym, running track, basketball court, and racquetball court comprise the Campus Center indoor facilities; outside, facilities include the Roemer fitness trail, soccer, baseball and softball fields, and a golf practice area. The Field House also features multiple court areas, a running track and an aerobics room and is adjacent to a lit turf field.
Our intercollegiate sports program, a member of the NCAA III, the NEAC, and ECAC, includes competitive teams in men’s baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s softball, men’s and women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s lacrosse.
Intramurals and Recreation
Our recreation staff will help you to become involved in a myriad of single event or league intramural programs. Teams from the residence halls can take on teams of off-campus students in sports like volleyball, basketball and indoor soccer, or mix-and-match players with the help of the intramural director. We want you to become active and involved!
For Credit Courses
Athletics offers 1-credit courses in fitness and recreation. Learn how to utilize the fitness center equipment and how to manage a personalized strength training or aerobic training program. Begin playing or hone your skills in recreational sports like golf and racquetball. Classes are offered each semester.
Students interested in competing less formally have the opportunity to participate in a variety of club sports. The ski and snowboarding club, hockey club, scuba club, lacrosse club, bowling, indoor soccer, fencing, cricket, water polo and mountain biking/running club are examples of teams that the Student Association at SUNYIT has sponsored in the past.
