Includes a variety of team and individual/dual sports. These are structured activities for which there is a formal sign-up procedure, a schedule to follow, supervision/officiating and a declared champion at the conclusion of competition. In order to meet the needs of all students, some sports are offered as single or double elimination tournaments, while many others are offered in a league format. When possible, teams/individuals are scheduled for at least five league games whether they win or lose. In most cases, all teams advance to a playoff tournament if they do not forfeit twice in league play. Competition in most sports is offered at highly competitive (all-school) and recreational (just-for-fun) levels for men and women, as well as co-recreational activities.
Sport clubs are student and faculty/staff interest groups in a particular activity. All sport clubs are funded by the Mandatory Student Activity Fee but operate under the auspices of Recreational Sports. Contact the assistant director of recreational sports for information on active clubs or possibly starting a new one.
