A Sport Club is a group of students voluntarily organized for the purpose of furthering their common interest in a sport through participation and competition. Participation in Sport Clubs is strictly voluntary. The Sport Club program is designed to offer opportunities to meet individual interests in different sports. These interests are generally competitive, recreational, and/or social in nature. Clubs represent the University in intercollegiate competition and conduct intra-club activities such as practice, instruction, social, and tournament play.
Participation in a Sport Club is meant to be a learning experience for members through their involvement in fundraising, public relations, organization, administration, budgeting, and scheduling, as well as the enjoyment of participation in their particular sport/activity. Involvement in a group and team situations enhances the students’ overall education while in a University setting. Clubs may vary in focus and programming since Club leaders are the active participants in the leadership, responsibility, and decision-making process.
