Athletics

The athletics program at the School of Foreign Service in Qatar plays an important role in the education of our students and the creation of a healthy campus community.

Hoya student-athletes train and practice in Education City, utilizing outdoor and indoor playing fields, an Olympic-size swimming pool, and state-of-the-art weight rooms. In addition to joining club sports teams, Georgetown students can take advantage of opportunities available at the Qatar Foundation Recreation Center, including yoga classes, golf tournaments, and tennis competitions. Qatar Foundation also provides a full-time weight room instructor and a swim coach to help students achieve athletic and fitness goals.

Georgetown SFS-Q teams compete in Qatar Foundation intercollegiate leagues, facing competitors from the other branch campuses in Education City and beyond.

If you are interested in joining one of the sports teams mentioned below, or want to start a club for a sport which is not currently offered at Georgetown, please contact the Office of Student Development. The five teams currently competing for the Blue & Gray include:
