Join a Varsity Team

If you are interested in trying out for one of NYU's varsity teams, you must fill out a recruit questionnaire for that team. You may also email the coach for more information. Coaches are listed on each team's page on gonyuathletics.com or can be found in the NYU Athletics Staff Directory.

Join a Club Sport

NYU has 21 club sports teams ranging from Ice Hockey to Ballroom Dance. Some club sports are recreational or instructional in nature, while others provide the opportunity for serious league competition. Regardless of the level of commitment required by the club sport, the desire to participate is always more important than athleticism. Last year, more than 1,250 students participated in intercollegiate club sport teams, 20% of whom were graduate students.

If you are interested in organizing a new club sport, review the Club Sports Handbook available online. You may also contact Matt Huck at 212.998.2037 or matt.huck@nyu.edu. Visit the Club Sports homepage on gonyuathletics.com for more information.

Last year, more than 8,000 students took part in organized intramural sport activities. NYU's intramural program offers a wide range of athletic competition. Visit the Intramural Sports homepage on gonyuathletics.com for more information, including important deadlines and sign-up information.
