Club Sports in College
Many students at Wheaton College participate in the large variety of club sports such as Cheerleading, Crew, Soccer, or Hockey.
It’s a good way to get benefits of sports without a huge time commitment.
If you played sports in high school, you know that it’s a one-of-a-kind experience. Playing sports can help students learn commitment, focus and teamwork. Participants also gain lasting friendships.
What Are Club Sports?
Club sports are intercollegiate athletic teams funded (and often founded) by students.
Club sports differ from intramural sports in the fact that teams compete against teams from other schools, rather than from the same school. Most club sports have a national championship. This lends to a more serious atmosphere for club sports than intramurals.
How do I get involved?
Check out the different club sports and then contact the student leader.
To participate in a club sport, you will need to a complete physical in the last 2 years from a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant, which indicate full clearance for your particular sport. Students who have a recent physical on record will need to complete a check up at Student Health Services with a registered nurse to review injury, illness and vaccine history.
