Recreational Sports

The recreational sports program at Green River College is an exciting way for students to join competitive sports teams, make friends, have fun and represent the school in recreational leagues throughout the Puget Sound area.

Recreational sports teams are offered each quarter, and are open to all students. No experience is required, just a desire to compete as a team.
