The Fencing Club. Equestrian Club. Quidditch Club. Rugby Club….

At UNCG Fall Kickoff, one table after another of student-led club sports showed off their season ahead and gave students a chance to get involved.

Volleyballs were flying at the Volleyball Club booth. The Bass Fishing Club members wore their uniforms. Some Fencing Club members were all decked out.

Club Sports are an excellent way for Spartan students to enjoy sports at a competitive level while developing and refining their leadership skills. Club Sports assist students with leadership development, communication skills, decision-making skills, and working in a team setting.

And they’re a fun way to make new friends. Previous experience is not a prerequisite.

All the Club Sports are part of the UNCG Office of Campus Activities and Programs, with direct supervision by the Department of Campus Recreation. The clubs compete against other colleges and universities, but they are not varsity sports or part of the NCAA or UNCG Athletics.

Learn more about each of the current Club Sports by visiting the Current Clubs page. Practice times and upcoming schedules can be found on the specific club’s page or by contacting the club’s officers via that page.

Whether you’re interested in Football Club, Swim Club, Lacrosse Club or Running Club – or interested in helping start one for a new sport – learn more at campusrec.uncg.edu/clubs. The clubs are returning to practice this week, so check them out soon.

Intramural Sports at UNCG are also gearing up – a chance to compete against and have fun with fellow Spartans. They’re a part of UNCG Campus Rec.

Have fun, learn some new things, and become Spartan Strong.
