External Team and Individual Sports

Student Services can help coordinate your travel and getting in touch with the coaches. Student Services can also provide a variety of outdoor activities equipment such as croquet, soccer nets, and spikeball.
Based on student interest we arrange specialist trainers to come to the BISC to hold fitness classes. In the past these have included Kickboxing, Zumba, Kettlebell, Yoga, and Military Circuits. Fitness classes may involve an extra cost to students.
Intramurals are always a popular part of the student experience and are a great way to get involved with peers and staff outside of the classroom. The sports vary each semester and are determined by student interest, but have included dodgeball, indoor soccer and volleyball.
