Why Club Sports?
Hope College offers athletic club opportunities in many areas not represented
by varsity sports. These clubs are student run and organized with the support
of the college. Each club sport plays club teams from other colleges both large
and small. Competition can range from
very competitive to simply for fun depending on the sport and opponent. Teams
hold weekly practices and often travel on weekends for tournaments. Club sports
are open to all students interested in the sport regardless of past experience.
Clubs are created by interest
within the student body. A neat aspect of club sports is that if a group of students
has a strong commitment and determination, they can start a new club team at
any time. Club teams are a great way to continue with a sport you love, meet
new friends, and stay active.
