About Sport Clubs

Ultimately, Sport Clubs enhance the collegiate and educational experiences of their members. The competitive aspect of the Clubs allows their members to compete against other intercollegiate sport teams, while the instructional aspect of Clubs offers members the chance to enhance their skills in a sport activity. The Sport Club program currently supports 25 clubs, with sports ranging from Aikido to Rugby to Water Polo. Each club is open to members of the University community, although some host try-outs to maintain a manageable roster.
