Sports & Recreation


Southwest Tech has our own award-winning National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Golf Team!


Intramural sports are competitive, exciting and fun! There are many intramural sports available for students in which to participate, including softball, basketball, kickball, and volleyball. They're held every Tuesday night at Fennimore Elementary School (830 Madison Street).

Indoor / Outdoor Walking Trails

Disc Golf

Do you want a quick, easy, way to stay in shape or burn off some steam? Southwest Tech has several walking routes available for your enjoyment! There is a one-mile indoor walking route inside the campus buildings that is ideal for cold or rainy days. If you enjoy the outdoors, there is an outdoor walking route at Southwest Tech as well.

Just across the road from campus is Oakwood Nature Park which has four different walking paths that you can do individually, or challenge yourself by doing them all as one long route.

Disc Golf Course

Fennimore and Southwest Tech have a wonderful 18-hole disc golf course available for students and community members. Located just across Highway 18 from campus behind the ball diamonds, it runs through the beautiful setting of the Oakwood Nature Park.
