Recreation and Wellness

Whether you’re interested in playing a varsity sport, want to join an intramural team for the love of the game, or are just looking to stay active and healthy, North Central gives you options. Because we believe a well-rounded college experience means paying attention to all aspects of wellness—mind, spirit, and body.

Intramural Activities

Intramural activities are a big deal at North Central. With a variety of year-round options like flag football, basketball, and futsal, intramurals will give you a chance to play the game you love—or maybe try a new sport—while helping you stay active and meet new friends.

Varsity Athletics

For those who want more serious competition, we offer 8 men’s and 8 women’s Division III varsity programs in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC).

Fitness Activities

We offer an on-campus fitness center, fitness classes like Zumba, and wellness coaching to help our students get active and stay healthy.
