Fall is in full swing and UGA football fans are celebrating the Dawgs' exciting season. Sports fanatics just can't get enough of the hype and fortunately they don't have to--fall isn't just for football! Athens, Ga., and the University of Georgia dive head-first into sports this year with tons of games and events to satisfy all walks (or runs!) of life.
Yes, UGA has Ice Hockey! Hosted for the first time ever in Athens' very own Classic Center, these energy-filled games are sure to have you jumping up and down in the stands. From the opening face-off until the final goal, there is never a dull moment with the Ice Dawgs! The icy atmosphere is perfect for those warm autumn days when you are looking to cool down, or on the chilly fall evenings to compliment the spirit of the season. Whether you are hardcore hockey buff or just interested in the action, head on over to the ticket booth and prepare to have great fun-the Ice Dawgs will never disappoint!
The UGA Women's Volleyball team has also started strong with three major wins to showcase! Taking place in either Ramsey or the Coliseum, women's volleyball has a casual atmosphere with dedicated fans to perfectly satisfy your sporting fix. While the players are an obvious crowd-favorite, another part of the fun is listening to the pep band, watching the cheerleaders, and dancing along with Spike, the inflatable bulldog. Check out the schedule here to see when you can come out to support your volleyball dawgs!
Dive into some great fun at a UGA Swimming and Diving meet! The Lady Bulldogs won their first meet of the year against Vanderbilt--a promising sign for the rest of the year! There's a certain thrill to sitting dozens of feet above ground in the bleachers, taking in the chlorine-infused air. The competitive spirit of these meets makes it impossible to ignore! Don't miss out on a great time in the Ramsey Center with the UGA Swim & Dive team!
Ranked 22nd in the nation, the UGA women's soccer team is a surefire win in terms of fun. From the corner-shot stomping to the out-of-this-world headers, the UGA woman's soccer team will always entertain. Kick it with these lovely ladies in the Turner Soccer Complex for some friendly competition!
