20% of students participate in one of our 17 varsity teams. And nearly 70% of the student body is involved in intramurals. So this building is a second home for many. In addition to varsity basketball courts, the facility contains a pool, fitness center, free weight room, ballet/dance studio, wrestling room and the steam/sauna. Whether you're out to break AJ's swimming record, do some serious training, or firm up a few soft spots, Lamade's central location makes it easy to incorporate fitness into college life.
The Rec Center consists of four intramural basketball courts, a suspended indoor running track, an expanded weight room, and an exercise and fitness area. Home to our intramural program, students compete for the championship in eight different sports, like Indoor Soccer, Flag Football and Whiffle Ball. You could be one of over 500 students that find their way onto a team like Tazmen or The Fighting Mooses.
On top of intramurals, you can annually catch a concert here, like past performers Yellowcard, Breaking Benjamin, Howie Day, and Taking Back Sunday. The Rec Center also houses community service activities like the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and Hand-in-Hand, an event in conjunction with the Special Olympics.
The 15-acre complex of varsity fields is a short walk (make that a jog) north of the campus. The new complex has a 2,200-seat stadium with individual locker rooms for soccer, football, lacrosse and cross-country. Lycoming's football team, perennial league champs, has been to the nationals twice in ten years.
