We believe athletics are a conduit for knowledge and inspiration. Whether you’ve been a teammate since T-ball or a solitary strider, a record-setter or a statistics-crunching spectator, there’s a part for you to play in Carolina athletics.
At Carolina, we educate and inspire through athletics. Follow our 28 varsity teams, the talented athletes who compete and the inspirational coaches who guide them.
Build mind and body, set personal goals and meet your fitness challenges with campus recreational opportunities ranging from rock-climbing to lap-swimming.
See what all the intramural buzz is about. Engage in some friendly competition against other Tar Heels. Gather a group of your best friends and start a team, or just join a sport you love.
