A club sport is a student organization that is formed and led by WCU students who have a love and passion for their sport or activity, and may be looking for an opportunity to participate on a longer term (usually both semesters). A club sport may contain recreational, instructional, and socialization components, but must be competitive in nature. Some clubs are a part of national governing bodies/leagues , but all clubs compete against other universities across the state and region.
We currently have 21 active club sports varying from Ballroom Dance to Men's and Women's Rugby with over 500 club sport athletes. Don't see your sport listed? Ask about starting a club sport!
Participation in our club sports program is a valuable part of student development and can greatly enhance a student's college experience. We encourage all levels of skill and support equal opportunity to any student regardless their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, or veteran status.

Your financial support assists clubs with annual operating costs such as coaching services, registration fees, equipment, travel, uniforms and apparel.
