Athletics at Saint Leo University
There has never been a better time to be a Lion. Saint Leo University Athletics is now a top five program in all of NCAA Division II. Our athletes compete in the Sunshine State Conference, which is known as the "Conference of National Champions." With their spirit of courage and zeal for competition, our men’s and women’s teams boast scholar-athletes, all-star members, and academic all-district honors designees, among many other accolades.
Our athletics department also extends beyond our competitive student-athletes and provides all students the option of recreational sports to have fun and enjoy some physical activity with friends. Learn more about recreational and intramural sports below.

Intramurals and Recreational Teams
The goal of the Saint Leo Recreation Department is to provide safe, quality programming through recreational activities that promote the social, mental, and physical well-being of our students, faculty, and staff.
Get active and meet new people
Intramural sports are a great way to make new friends, develop your mind and body, and learn new skills. Participate in structured leagues and an array of activities, including:
- Basketball, volleyball, soccer, and kickball leagues
- Pickleball, tennis, golf, and fishing tournaments
- Ultimate frisbee, flag football, corn hole, and pickle ball
You may even find yourself pitching against your stats professor or cheering on your admissions counselor—a bunch of our faculty and staff play IM sports.
Saint Leo University's 4,000-square-foot Fitness Center contains all the latest cardio and weight-lifting equipment along with a group exercise room. See the latest Group Exercise schedule.
If you enjoy walking and running outdoors, we have designated routes all along our scenic campus, courtesy of Campus Recreation. See our route lengths and download a campus map!
The Bowman Center Pool is perfect for doing laps, relaxing in the sunshine, and student group meetups.
Directly across the road from campus, the 18-hole, regulation-length public golf course features 5,659 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71.
Our peaceful lakefront allows you to contemplate, fish, or take the canoes, kayaks, or paddleboards out on the water.
“Open Recreation” is the supervised, but unstructured, use of the Saint Leo athletic facilities. (You must check into events with your Saint Leo ID.) Check out our Open Recreation hours.
