Sport Clubs

Sport Clubs provide students with leadership opportunities and a more rigorous athletic experience. There are two tiers of Sport Club teams. COMPETITIVE teams practice 2-3 times per week and compete against other off-campus clubs and Universities. Rec Sports also administers RECREATIONAL TIER clubs. These are clubs that practice, but do not compete against other clubs or schools. Members of both tiers of clubs have to pay a $25 insurance fee each year.
