Overview of Club Sports

  • Most club teams do not have tryouts. Some have roster limits due to league restrictions, but no one gets cut from the team due to ability or experience level.
  • Club teams practice 2-3 times per week.
  • Most clubs have 6-10 games per season.
  • Similar to high school athletics, club teams play and practice during a specific period each academic year. This allows students to participate in multiple club sports if so desired.
