Policies

The Club Sports program is designed to serve individual interests in different sports and recreational activities. These interests can be competitive, recreational, or instructional in nature, as Clubs may represent Western Oregon University in intercollegiate competition or conduct intra-Club activities such as practice, instruction, socialization, and tournament play.

A Club Sport is a voluntarily registered student club established through the Campus Recreation Department by students to engage or participate in a sport or activity in pursuit of the development, skills, and interests of its members. Participation in Club Sports is strictly voluntary.

Club Sports provide students a learning experience through their involvement in establishment, public relations, organization, administration, budgeting, and scheduling, as well as the development of skills in their particular sport. Involvement in a group and team setting creates opportunities to enhance the student´s overall experiences at Western Oregon University.

Club Sports may vary in focus and programming since the members are active participants in the leadership, responsibility, and decision making process of Club activities.

Club Sports difference from Intramural Sports (IM)

Club Sports teams regularly participate in scheduled practices, may employ part-time coaches and compete against other schools across Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and the nation. Intramural teams are comprised of students, faculty, staff and partners compete against other WOU IM teams. IM teams typically do not have coaches or regularly scheduled practices.

Club Sports difference from Intercollegiate Athletics

Club Sports are managed and run by the participants themselves, including adherence to league or national organization rules, coach selection, travel, fundraising, scheduling, practices and participant development. Club Sports bridge the gap between Intramurals and Intercollegiate Athletics. Intercollegiate Athletics adhere to the NCAA Division II guidelines, policies, regulations and are managed by WOU coaches and trainers.
