Sport Clubs Overview 

The CWU Sport Club Program is designed to provide opportunities for CWU Students with mutual interests in a sporting activity, to pursue their interests more in depth. Each club is formed and administered by their student membership. Student leadership, interest, and participation are essential elements of a successful sport club. 

The Collegiate Sport Club Program at CWU is designed to be a learning experience for members through their involvement in: 

  • Leadership 
  • Club Administration 
  • Financial Management 
  • Event and Travel Planning 

The leadership traits developed through these experiences are not only intended to benefit the students during their time on campus, but long after they leave the University.

Testimonial Image

I have nothing, but great things to say about CWU’s sport club program. I haven been a part of the program for four years and in those years, I have improved not only my leadership skills, but my professional skills as well. Sport clubs allows student-athletes to play at a competitive level while developing a variety of skills along the way. Thanks to sport clubs, I found my passion for sport management and received my bachelor’s degree in Sport Management. If you have a passion for sports and want to play in college, but cannot commit to the varsity level, come give sport clubs a try because you will not be disappointed.
