Rec Sports is my passion. Rec Sports has many components to satisfy your competitive side, fitness side, outdoor side, not to mention your social side! Take a break from your studies and "get lost" in rec sports! We are unlike any department on campus. 

San Jac Central has a great Rec Sports Program- I hope you will get involved and join the fun. See ya on the field/court/water and Live it, Play it, REC IT!
