The NYUAD Recreational Sports Program is designed to offer students as a wide range of activities to participate in. Recreational opportunities are available weekly for all students. For many, this may be their first opportunity to try their hands at activities such as rock climbing, karting, sailing or ice skating. Regardless of skill or ability, the aim is to provide a fun and exciting environment while helping to develop new interests.
Recreational sports are based on student participation and interest — the NYUAD Athletics department considers almost any suggestion from students — to provide the opportunities that students want.
In addition to our weekly recreation activities, the Rec Series program offers students the opportunity to explore new activities more than just one time in order to further their interest and skills. Typical series will meet 3-4 times during the course of a month with the idea that active participation by students will lead to the formation of a future student interest group, PE class or team in the future.
Students learn key tactics and maneuvers used in paintball to advance their skill. Paintball is one of our most popular recreational activities for both men and women. Learning from dedicated professionals through this rec series seeks to enhance student's level of play and enjoyment of activity.
