NOVA's ice hockey team is a member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association's Blue Ridge Conference.

Intramural Sports

The Intramural Sports Program at NOVA wants to encourage the wellness of its community by providing opportunities to both students and faculty/staff to engage in fun, competitive and social activities. Grab some friends, sign up your student organization, or get a group of your fellow NOVA co-workers together and register for an Intramural Sports League or one of the various intramural tournaments.

There are plenty of sports and activities to choose from including soccer, flag football, bowling and basketball. The Intramural Sports Department is continually working to expand and offer new sports and activities; so be on the lookout for events that interest you!

Fitness Classes/Facilities

Develop a strong mind and body. Spend time at one of NOVA's fitness facilities, join an intramural sports team or sign up for a fitness class. Fitness facilities are available at Alexandria, Annandale and Loudoun.
