Sport and Recreational

Championing leadership, teamwork and dedication, physical fitness is at the core of student life at AUD.

From the highly competitive athlete to the regular fitness fanatic, AUD’s Athletic Program offers many opportunities to join and compete in intercollegiate team sports such as basketball, soccer, tennis, volleyball and swimming. 

With regular tournaments, friendly games and international competitions filling the sporting calendar, the Athletics Division at AUD gives students the opportunity to stay fit and healthy,  while competing with other Universities, developing their leadership and teamwork skills, and learning that regular practice and dedication leads to success.

While we encourage our student’s involvement competitive sports, it’s not all about being on the team.  AUD seeks to develop and maintain the fitness of all members of the community and offers a drop-in program for students, faculty and staff who are interested in keeping fit with others, without the commitment of competitive teams.
