While the Appalachian State University football team garnered three NCAA Div I FCS national championships between 2005 and 2007 - and upset the University of Michigan in 2007 - Mountaineer athletics has more to brag about than just its gridiron success.
Appalachian fields 20 NCAA Division I varsity sports, 19 of which compete in the Southern Conference (SoCon). For an unprecedented eight times, the Mountaineers have earned in the same year both the SoCon Commissioner's and Germann cups, which recognize the league's top men's and women's all-sports programs.
University Recreation oversees all non-varsity sports activities on campus, including intramurals, club sports, outdoor programs, and fitness and informal recreation.
The Mountaineer football team brought home the 2005, 2006 and 2007 NCAA Div I FCS National Championships. For more varsity sports information, visit Go ASU.
Appalachian boasts some of the finest athletics facilities that the SoCon and the nation have to offer. The crown jewel is the new Kidd Brewer Stadium Complex, which houses training and academic areas for all 20 varsity sports, as well as club seating and luxury suites for Mountaineer football.
UREC offers club sports, intramurals, aquatics, personal fitness programs, and adventures in rafting, rock climbing, backpacking, and caving.
The Student Recreation Center includes a juice bar, 50-foot climbing wall, cardio theater, weight room, indoor track, and a 50-meter swimming pool.
