Historical Note

Physical training for women was first organized in September 1899 under the direction of Pearl Eleanor Norvell, who utilized the first Gymnasium for Women in the Old Main building. In 1903, the program began to operate out of the newly constructed Women’s Building, which was built with a gymnasium and swimming pool in the basement. In the fall of 1904, Eunice Aden, director of Physical Training for Women from 1910-1921, started the Women's Athletic Association (W.A.A). In 1924, the Board of Regents established the College of Physical Activities, under which the UT women's sports program continued to operate.

The first women's club to be organized under the W.A.A. was the Texas Turtle Swimming Club in 1919. Professor Anna Hiss, who came to the university as an instructor in 1918 and served as Director of Physical Training for Women from 1921 to 1957, acted as the faculty sponsor. In 1920, the Racquet Club (tennis) was organized with five charter members. Eight other clubs were also created and formed the nucleus of women's sports at UT: Tee (golf), Canter (riding), Archery (archery), Touché (fencing), Poona (badminton), Strike & Spare (bowling), Tumle (tumbling), and Triggerette (riflery). Women’s sports at this time were largely social and non-competitive in nature.

In 1931, Physical Training for Women became a department in the College of Arts and Sciences and the construction of a new Women’s Gymnasium (later named for Anna Hiss in 1974) was completed. At this time, the W.A.A. became known as The University of Texas Sports Association (U.T.S.A). In 1933, Women's Intramurals separated from the U.T.S.A. and started a formal program that was organized around three divisions: sororities, dormitories, and independent groups. Individuals and groups were awarded cups, pins, and felt emblems at the annual "T-Night" Banquet for Women. In 1937, the first posture contest was conducted and, due to its popularity as a spectator event, held its competition in Hogg Auditorium.

In 1952, Physical Training for Women was renamed the Department of Required Health and Physical Education for Women. In 1972, the Departments of Intramural Sports for Men and Women were combined into one administrative division and renamed the Division of Recreational Sports. The Division, also known as RecSports, is now composed of subdivisions for Intramural Sports, Fitness/Wellness, Outdoor Recreation, Sport Clubs, the Instructional Program, and Informal Recreation.
