About Recreation Services

Recreation Services offers recreation and fitness opportunities to Florida International University's students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Recreational Facilities such as the Recreation Center, swimming pool, Rec Field, and tennis, racquetball and basketball courts are available. Participate in Intramural Sports in team or individual/dual activities such as flag football, basketball, tennis or racquetball regardless of your skill level. Women's, men's and co-rec (co-educational) leagues are available in most team sports. Improve your fitness and self-esteem levels through a variety of Fitness & Recreational Instruction choices such as PantherFIT Group Fitness Classes, tennis lessons or running clinics. Work as an IM Sports Referee or Fitness Attendant. If you're interested in pursuing a specific sport/activity at a more intense level, Sport Clubs such as Rugby, Equestrian, Lacrosse, Scuba Diving or Table Tennis may be to your liking. Maybe take a skiing or whitewater rafting trip out-of-state, or experience some of our local natural attractions like the Everglades or Shark Valley. All these activities are on a non-varsity level and are not for class credit - no grades and no pressure!

FIU is more than an academic institution with textbooks, laboratories and professors. When you participate in extracurricular activities like Recreation Services, you find opportunities for leadership, social and multicultural interaction, camaraderie, physical activity and stress reduction that you can't find in the classroom.

Located in the Recreation Center on the MMC campus, Recreation Services staff can provide you with schedules, entry forms, informational brochures, and even help match you up with an Intramural team if you can't find one.

Join the fun of Recreation Services - there's something for everyone!
