Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center at York College in the summer

Athletics and Recreation

Twenty-three varsity sports. A 170,000 square foot modern sport and fitness center. Dozens of club and intramural sports. Even an indoor climbing wall. If you don’t find a way to play or exercise at York College, it’s not for lack of options.

You have every athletic advantage at your disposal as a Spartan student — and you don’t even need to be a varsity athlete. We proudly produce nearly two dozen varsity sports that regularly compete in conference championships and national tournaments — if you want to see all things Spartan varsity sports, including schedules, scores, opportunities and more, check out

But what’s great about being a York College student who is into fitness and competition is you get access to premiere facilities and countless chances to play throughout the year. Physical fitness is part of the culture here. Add in an enviable fitness center, an indoor jogging track, and a swimming pool, plus the nearby Rail Trail for biking and jogging, and you’re set. Have some competitive juices flowing? We offer a variety of club sport teams which offer an opportunity to compete against outside competition, plus over 20 intramural sports to participate at a more casual level and compete against fellow Spartans. The best part? As a full-time student it is included in your fees and part-time students can pay a nominal price. You just need a Spartan ID card — and a little motivation.
