Department of Recreation and Wellness
The Sport Clubs Program is designed to assist and develop the interests and skills of team members in specific sports. The traditional focus of club teams is on seeking intercollegiate competition with representative teams from other clubs, schools, colleges, or universities. There are some sport clubs, however, organized solely for recreational or instructional purposes.
Sport clubs present a unique learning opportunity for those students who choose to form, lead, and expand their clubs. Students elect their own officers, draft their own constitutions, determine practice days and times, schedule facility space, set up playing schedules with other teams, and locate and pay officials for home contests. Officers in sport clubs truly learn what the term "student development" means.
