The Club Sports program at Wake Forest University offers the community an opportunity to participate in a broad variety of sports and recreational activities. All programs are based on student interest and designed to enhance the Wake Forest experience by creating an environment where students can unite in diverse groups to achieve common goals and objectives while encouraging leadership, teamwork, a competitive spirit and a sense of wellbeing. Club sports provides a valuable learning experience through student involvement in fundraising, public relations, organization, administration, budgeting, scheduling, teaching, and leadership development.
Club Sports are student-initiated and student managed. Club members are actively involved in determining the objectives and procedures of their club. The organizational and decision-making duties of each club are the responsibility of the members and their officers. Successful and thriving clubs are those with active members and dedicated officers and leaders.
