Intramural Sports

Intramural sports are “non-varsity” competitions between students.  They are fun, friendly, but challenging competitions which require no outstanding athletic skills. They are designed and offered to “everyday athletes.”  Only a positive attitude is required to play.

Flag Football
Volleyball
Soccer
Basketball
Softball

CLUB SPORTS

The Club Sports program exists to provide the Nicholls community with a variety of opportunities for personal growth and development.  The program offers the opportunity to compete in extramural competition against other clubs, schools, colleges, and universities.  Nicholls students must comprise the majority of membership for each club and serve as club officers.

For more information about how to create a club, visit the Student Organization page.
