Athletics & Recreation

The athletic programs at UW-Richland will offer you something universities can’t - the chance to play immediately. Our programs will not only help you develop athletically but academically as well. We are committed to challenging you on the court and in the classroom. Our coaches, faculty and staff will be there to help you learn and grow, both physically and mentally. 

There are many ways to get involved on and off the court as a player, scorekeeper, team manager or fan. Community members are welcome & encouraged to join students, faculty and staff to cheer on UW-Richland teams, the Roadrunners. Learn the UW-Richland anthem.

UW-Richland has several intercollegiate or varsity sports: women’s volleyball (fall), men’s basketball and women’s basketball. The Roadrunners are members of the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference (WCC).  Learn more in the WCC Handbook
