Club sports provide an opportunity for students to participate in fun, competitive sports. The sport clubs compete against other colleges and universities across the nation. Clubs offer opportunities for all levels of experience to receive valuable leadership skills. The level of competition does vary between each club. Some clubs are intramural, while others compete at the varsity level. Some clubs even travel across the United State and participate in National Tournaments!
Club sports operate under the direction of the Department of Campus Recreation. Each club must register with the Student Government Association and the Department of Campus Recreation. For more information about Club Sports contact Sam Kelner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
