Athletic participation is a way for students to grow and learn and enjoy themselves and to use and develop their personal, physical and intellectual skills. UNYP provides all its students, faculty and staff members with free access to a variety of sports facilities. Sport and recreation are as an important part of student life, and through your participation in diverse athletic activities we hope to strengthen your ties with the UNYP community and make your experience at UNYP as enjoyable as possible.
You can take aerobics or dance classes, get involved in team and individual sports, such as playing soccer or basketball for the UNYP Blazers Teams, or work out at the gym or pool. There are also opportunities to take part in a wide range of “lifestyle” or fitness activities from zumba to Pilates. Join in and have fun!
UNYP Blazers Teams
The University of New York in Prague is home to the UNYP Blazers. We represent our university by participating in many sporting activities, primarily in Football (Futsal) and Basketball.
UNYP Blazers represents the hallmark of UNYP Spirit, and provide great opportunities to meet other students and compete against other school, college and corporate teams. We also have a swimming team, UNYP Gulf Stream, and a dance team. Once a year, we send a softball team to a local charity tournament.
