Sport Clubs

Sport clubs are student run organizations that offer competitive, recreational, or instructional opportunities to the student body.

Competitive sport clubs generally are associated with a regional or national league and have extensive travel. Recreational sport clubs are focused on campus and provide opportunities to recreate on campus in a safe environment. Instructional sport clubs provide skill building within an activity and generally have an instructor guiding sessions or practices.
