The Club Sports Program provides a wide range of instructional and competitive athletic opportunities with an emphasis on student athlete leadership, organization, team management and sportsmanship.  For athletes who want to specialize in their sport and really hone their skills in that one sport, joining a club team could be a great way to get the coaching and sport-specific development they desire.
