Sport clubs fill the void between Intramural sports and varsity athletics. In most cases, a club team competes at a high, experienced level, similar to varsity sports.
Some clubs require previous experience due to the intense level of play. However, many clubs welcome walk-ons at all levels of experience.
Practice schedules vary by club. Most practice 2-3 times a week for about two hours per practice. The number of practices a member must attend is determined by each club.
Clubs are partially funded through Recreation and Wellbeing. Some clubs charge membership dues to help supplement operational costs.
As a general rule, members are required to purchase equipment that's personal, specialized and sized or fitted — including skis, skates, baseball gloves, livestock, etc. Typically, clubs will purchase jerseys/uniforms and minor equipment with club funds from the university.
