Sport @ AIT
Sport and physical activity is central to life at AIT. We firmly believe that active membership in a sporting club has a positive and enhancing effect on students, affording you opportunities to represent the institute nationally, and in some instances to represent the institute and Ireland in overseas competitions. However, you do not need to aspire to such lofty sporting achievements, most of our participants are involved for fun and health reasons. Last year, AIT teams and individuals achieved success in a wide variety of codes and competitions. Such sporting success is built upon the excellent indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as the established coaching/team management system, which is implemented by full-time physical education and recreation officers, with the assistance of part-time coaching staff and the students’ sports representative.
