Georgia Highlands College (GHC) is adding four new sports to a growing list of competitive league sports now available to new and current students. Forming teams include men’s soccer, women’s volleyball, cross country and cheerleading. Basketball and eSports were also recently added.

Although these teams will not compete in a Varsity Division, players will bring their talent to a statewide competition with teams across the university system where they will play against other colleges in competitive leagues and contend for regional and national championships across the state and region. 

Student Engagement Coordinator Clifton Puckett said the teams will be part of a number of organizations, including the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), the National Club Basketball Association (NCBBA) and the Southeast Collegiate Soccer Alliance. 

GHC’s new competitive sports are being touted as “perfect for those who recently competed in high school, on travel sports teams, or on competitive leagues of any kind,” and the program promises to help players “build leadership, communication, decision-making, and team skills while earning a college degree.”
