IM REC (Intramural & Recreation)

"Where Everyone Can Get Involved!"

What is IM REC? IM REC stands for Intramural and Recreation. The IM REC department offers students the opportunity to live active and meaningful lives while on campus. We strive to offer traditional sports as well as to introduce new activities and events to our students, faculty and staff. Some of these special events involve student versus faculty/staff softball games and basketball games, and a strongman competition. We also have traditional leagues and tournaments which include: flag football, ping-pong, basketball, sand volleyball, indoor soccer, darts, golf, racquetball, bowling, horseshoes, and 3-point shoot-out.

Chattanooga’s location in the Tennessee Valley provides access to premiere outdoor recreational activities. Hiking, boulder climbing, white-water rafting, mountain biking, and caving are among many outdoor activities offered.

IM REC takes trips to Six Flags, professional sporting events, paintball challenges, and more. We aim to bring people together. We offer special pricing to our students, faculty and staff. We also extend special pricing to friends and family members of ChattState students, so they can join us and add to the fun and enhance your college experience.
