In 2000, Champlain eliminated all varsity athletics on campus to focus on offering students other recreational opportunities. Today, students are left with beautiful facilities including Argosy Gymnasium and the IDX Wellness Center and Fitness Studio.
Students recognize the lack of school spirit as a result of the absence of division sports. There are plenty of athletic people that come to Champlain and enjoy playing various intramural sports, which are available every weeknight. The volleyball and cross-country teams are starting to get more serious and looking to compete against other schools in the near future. Already, Champlain's rugby (girls and guys) and ice hockey (coed) play against other collegiate club teams. There is also a dance team. Others who just want to be fit and not play team sports can enjoy fitness in the IDX Wellness Fitness Studio, where there are classes including yoga, kickboxing, Zumba, RIPPED, and other strength and cardio training.
