You don’t need to join a varsity athletics team to play your sport on campus.
Through the university’s club sport program, all full-time undergraduates can organize a sports team for competitive play. The university currently has club teams in men’s and women’s rugby, roller hockey, and ice hockey.
What students need to know, though, is that each club exists by through student participation and involvement. It’s the club’s responsibility to set goals and objectives, raise money and coordinate schedules. Think of it this way: it’s just another leadership opportunity Widener offers!
Clubs must also abide by the rules and regulations of their sport’s governing body, league, or union. Club advisors and the Director of the Wellness Center will help make sure clubs do this.
Some housekeeping: Only full-time, day, undergraduate, Main Campus students are eligible to participate in Widener University's Club Sport Program. All club sport participants must maintain a minimum overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.0.
