Recreation & Fitness
You want to move? Walk this way. Our extensive recreational facilities include the Haas Athletic Center, the Clark Center and the recently renovated fitness center in the Balfour-Hood Center. You can take advantage of basketball and tennis courts, Selectorized/Nautilus circuit, plated-loaded machines, a 200-meter track and a 25-yard or 25-meter swimming pool. Outdoor facilities include a running and walking path, lighted tennis and basketball courts and playing fields. Throughout the year, we also sponsor a variety of fitness classes and activities—from kickboxing to pilates.
Wheaton's growing intramurals program includes co-ed teams for basketball, flag football, floor hockey, soccer, softball, table tennis and water polo. Intramural sports feature low-key competition and high-spirited fun. A highlight each year is the Head of the Peacock Regatta, when intrepid Wheaton sailors attempt to propel their homemade vessels across the college pond.
Our students also run a number of sports clubs with funding from the Student Government Association. These include water polo, rugby, ice hockey and the equestrian team. Club offerings vary, depending on student interest.
