Temporary Virtual Services

The  Department of Recreational Sports has been moved to a virtual platform. Although we are not physically in the office we are still available online or via email.


Due to the coronavirus, our department has moved to the telecommuting platform. We are all still available to you via email.  Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns.

Effective immediately, Chico State has suspended all intercollegiate spring competitions for Wildcat athletes, post-season, practices, and student-athlete recruitment.  In addition to the suspension of intercollegiate athletics, all recreational sports, intramural, and sport club programs are also suspended for spring 2020.

We know it is disappointing to have the season cut short, but ultimately, the safety and well-being of our Wildcat family and supporters has to take precedence.
