What is a Club Sport?

A Club Sport is a student organization that has been formed by individuals motivated by a common interest, desire to participate in a favorite sport activity, and who want to enjoy a longer relationship (usually both semesters) with their sport of choice. A club sport may be oriented toward any of the following: competition, teaching, recreation, or socialization. Many clubs compete against other universities across the state and region. WCU currently has 18 active clubs with about 400 participant varying from rugby to ballroom dance.


Compete at Your Level

Club sports are offered on a four tier system and must meet certain requirements to be in each tier. See the tier system.

Conditional Tier:  For first year clubs, clubs under probation, or did not meet recreational tier.
Recreational Tier. Recreational in nature, these clubs exist more for the simple participation in the social/instructional aspect of the activity.
Competitive 1 Tier: Competitive clubs that compete locally and regionally but not necessarily governed by a national governing body
Competitive 2 Tier: Highly competitive clubs that compete locally, regionally and nationally and are typically governed by a national governing body
