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.

- Hoya Cricket Club
- Men's Football
- Women's Football
- Women's Basketball
