A club sport is a recognized student-initiated and student-led organization that has been established to promote and develop the interests and skills of members in a particular sport or recreational activity. These clubs may be instructional, recreational and/or competitive, depending upon the sport or activity and the philosophy of the club. Participation in club sports is strictly voluntary. Club sports members may learn new athletic skills or refine existing skills, engage in healthy competition, and enjoy positive social interaction with teammates and opponents. Club Sports are also designed to create many learning and leadership opportunities for students.
