Athletics & Recreation



Create an enriching college experience through diverse and inclusive sports programming that build collegiate spirit while promoting physical wellness and active lifestyle



  • To provide opportunities to develop the ethics and characters necessary to lead a meaningful and physically active life within and beyond campus.
  • To create platforms that continuously challenge students to discover new perspectives and experiences through competitive and recreational sports, games, physical activities and courses.
  • To support the athletic and recreation aspirations of our community and encourage a culture of active lifestyle by making athletics and recreation a key component of residential living.
  • To create and sustain spaces and resources to support our students’ athletics and recreation pursuits.


Every Yale-NUS student is encouraged to join any of our many sports teams, fitness groups and recreational clubs. We prioritise inclusivity and peer-based learning when it comes to athletics and recreation at Yale-NUS College. Students, regardless of experience and ability, have the opportunity to pick up a new sport or recreational activity. Those who have more experience in a sport would coach their peers who are starting out. Additionally, it is not uncommon to have staff, faculty and family members from the Yale-NUS community join our training sessions and community events.


Many of our current teams started out as interest groups led by sophomores and first-year students who then prepare their teams for various competitions such as the Inter-Faculty Games (IFG) and Inter-College Games (ICG) within NUS and friendly games with other schools and organisations.


Additionally, engaging recreation and fitness activities are regularly held during term time to promote physical and social wellness. This is achieved through collaboration with external sports and fitness partners, who are experienced in providing meaningful and engaging experience for our students. This is part of the wellness initiative within the campus.
