  • basketball,
  • volleyball,

  • ice hockey,
  • swimming,
  • aesthetic gymnastics.

Every year the sports club  organises:

  • basketball championships,
  • quick-matches in basketball with academic staff and international students,
  • a Freshmen's Sports Day (very popular!),
  • quick-matches in volleyball with academic staff and international students,
  • an RSU marathon team for the Lattelecom Rīga Marathon,
  • Winter Sports Day for international freshmen (held in February, also involving exchange students).

The sports club also has a body-building hall, however to attend it you will have to become a member of the sports club. Workouts are provided both in the afternoon and in the evening.

Should you wish to go swimming, you can go to the sports centre "Ķīpsala", which offers student discounts.

Everyone into sports is welcome to attend the sports club and participate in the organised events!

** This martial art, based on rhythm, is open for boys and girls of all levels. Especially NEWCOMERS can start any time. Do not worry about your "level of fitness". All lessons are supposed to be challenging – without overstraining you! Strength and flexibility is the result of your own regular practice. And besides movement, Capoeira is about getting into contact with new people that share and enjoy the moment together inside the group. If you would like to get to know about what Capoeira is: visit us! For more information please see www.epcapoeira.net and visit their Facebook page Expressão Paulista de Capoeira - Latvia.
