Competitive Clubs

Competitive clubs compete against outside competition, usually other collegiate clubs, as part of a structured regional or national league. Competitive clubs must be part of a National Governing Body or Association. Many competitive clubs have coaches, travel and play off-campus, and conduct regularly scheduled practices. Competitive club sports also typically involve a greater financial commitment and time commitment, both in number of days per week and a longer period for the season.

Recreational Clubs
