SCC has made a commitment to provide quality recreational facilities for intramurals, leisure, and exercise. Each campus has its own gym and wellness center with cardiovascular equipment, gym equipment, and weight machines. The facilities are open for credit students and staff/faculty use. Showers and locker rooms are provided for daily use. Schedules are posted outside the facilities.
Besides the indoor gym and wellness centers, outdoor sand volleyball courts, softball fields, and tennis courts are available but vary by campus. Classes and intramural leagues have first priority, but if no activity is scheduled on the outdoor facilities, they are available on a first come, first serve basis.
The SCC campuses are also committed to the advancement of the mind, body, and spirit of each student. Activities and events throughout the year focus on health and wellness issues of the college student. Events include health fairs, alcohol awareness activities, special awareness days (breast cancer, heart health, Great American Smokeout, etc.), blood pressure screenings, fitness evaluations and exercise programs, flu shots, blood drives, and many more are provided free for students.
SCC’s Continuing Education division offers a number of sports, recreation, and fitness classes for a minimal fee. Class topics include yoga, kickboxing, meditation, Pilates, golf, tennis, and many more.
The Beatrice campus also has a partnership with the local YMCA for students/staff to join at discounted rate. YMCA membership includes use of the pool and the ability to join classes for YMCA members. Contact the Business Office for information.
