Club Sports @ W&L

Sport Clubs at Washington and Lee University are groups of individuals who share a common interest in a sport activity. Sport Clubs are member-initiated and organized with an emphasis placed on participation. It is through participation in sport activity that members are afforded the opportunity to develop their physical, social, administrative, and leadership skills.

The Sport Club Program offers opportunities to participate in many diverse sport activities designed to support the pursuit of lifelong activity and to assist in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The purpose of these activities is to improve skill level, increase knowledge of the activity and promote cooperative attitudes and behaviors.

The Sport Club program is designed to serve student interest in different sports and recreational activities. These interests can be competitive, recreational or instructional in nature as clubs may represent the University in intercollegiate competition or conduct intra-club activities such as tournament play, practice, instruction and social interaction.

It is Campus Recreation's desire to extend to any student at Washington and Lee University the opportunity to participate individually or with a team in the Sport Club Program. All information and policies contained in the Campus Recreation's Sport Club Handbook are supplementary to the guidelines and policies of the Office of Campus Activities. As a chartered sports club at the Washington and Lee University each club and its membership are expected to follow all policies and procedures as described in the handbook. Club members are also expected to abide by the Washington and Lee University Student Code of Conduct.
