1st Annual Oozeball Tournament Champs!
Life’s about balance-get out and get active! The Recreation Department here at Western is dedicated to providing the campus community with a multitude of various recreational activities to encourage physical fitness and promote a positive well-being.
Our university is unique in that the Western community can utilize athletic facilities on two different campuses. At Midtown you will find the Bill Williams Gymnasium for aerobics and fitness classes, and the fitness room for cardio workouts and strength training. Our Westside campus is home to the William A. O’Neill Athletic and Convocation Center, which houses a six-lane natatorium, a four-lane indoor track, four full courts for basketball and volleyball, and a fitness center for cardio and strength training. Also located here is the Westside Athletic Complex, three spacious practice fields and six lighted tennis courts. And inside the Westside Campus Center is a fitness room mainly focused on cardio fitness and core strength training.

Active Club Sports...Fall 2014
The Club Sports Program provides an opportunity for individuals who share a common interest in a recreational sport, to improve their skill level and overall knowledge of the sport or activity. Club Sports can be organized on either a recreational or a competitive level. Instructional activities range from informal play, to regular practices, in preparation for intercollegiate and tournament competition. Many clubs compete with other schools and are a part of a collegiate league of play.
