Club Sports Program
The mission of the University of Wyoming Club Sports Program is to provide students the opportunity to participate in competitive sport clubs against intercollegiate teams, with an emphasis on student leadership, development, and involvement. The 21 Club Sports represent the University of Wyoming while competing regionally, nationally, and even internationally. Each club team is a Recognized Student Organization that is affiliated with the Campus Recreation Department as well as the Campus Activities Center. The teams are administered by students under the supervision of the Assistant Director of Programs and the Club Sports Coordinator.
The following statements define Club Sports and its philosophy:
- A Club Sport is a group of UW students that share a common interest around an organized competitive sport. While the level of competition varies from club to club, all clubs are student initiated and run.
- Emphasis is placed on student leadership and the most successful clubs are those with outstanding student leaders. The club strives and thrives only by means of active student involvement and participation.
- Club sports are designed to accept members of any skill level, but individual clubs may determine the composition of traveling squad(s) defined by skill level.
- The Club Sports Office provides encouragement, guidance, and supervision, but the success of the club depends on the involvement of students. The club will not maintain an active status without sufficient membership commitment.
Club Sports are offered to students, faculty, and staff who meet the eligibility requirements under the rules of each individual club's governing body. Individual clubs require a participation fee that aids in covering the cost of travel, lodging, equipment, and other necessary expenses. Club fees vary depending on the nature of the club. In addition, all club participants are required to fill out a participation waiver prior to participating in any club activity.
