The Club Sport Program
A sport club is a recognized student organization that has been formed by individuals motivated by a common interest and a desire to participate in a favorite sport activity. It exists to promote and develop interest in that sport. Its members may learn new skills, refine existing skills, engage in competition, and enjoy the recreational and social fellowship that sport supplies. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate as their time and interest permits. Clubs may be gender specific. The club experience is one of student development.
Baylor students may choose to participate in any of the 26 club sports that are currently offered.
Objectives of the Program
- To make available, to students and other members of the campus community, opportunities for instruction and participation in a wide range of sport programs which can develop sound lifelong leisure values and skills.
- To provide an avenue for camaraderie in the campus community through common interests, to develop a feeling of belonging among individuals in the shared pursuit of leisure interests.
- To develop leadership by providing opportunities for students to organize, administrate, and problem solve for individual clubs. While Campus Recreation assists clubs to secure needed funds, facilities, and equipment the emphasis is on student leadership and involvement, so the success of each club depends on the dedicated efforts of its student leaders and members. As a result, sport clubs present a unique opportunity for students to develop athletic, social and leadership qualities.
