Sports and Recreation
The Department of Recreational Sports supports more than a dozen Providence College club sports teams. For more information on the sports offered, please visit the Office of Recreational Sports’ site.
The Friar Divers Club was founded in 2013 and is comprised of two components – one that services aspiring students looking to get certified in basic and advanced levels of diving, and the other a recreational component designed to give certified members a chance to participate in open water diving right here in Rhode Island. Once certified, members enjoy free diving, rental equipment and in-state trips to locations such as Jamestown and Exeter, courtesy of the club. It is our sincere mission to educate through experience. We welcome all students, both certified and non, into our dive community, where we hope they will have experiences as profound as their academic lives on campus.
Outdoor Adventure Club
The Outdoor Adventure Club is a group of PC Students who wish to heighten the awareness of outdoor life by providing opportunities in natural settings and promoting responsible outdoor recreation and cultivating a wilderness ethic. Club activities include; orienteering, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, surfing and ski trips. The club is able to give PC students an opportunity to ski and ride at some of the best mountains in the East (at an affordable price.) Annually the club schedules day trips for students to enjoy. Mountains visited include: Mt. Snow, Sunday River, Stratton, Okemo, and Killington.
Please note – this is an informational listing and an ever-changing work in progress. Please contact the Office of Student Activities & Cultural Programming for more information on any of these clubs/organizations.
