Club sports are a great way to get involved in college. If you don’t want the commitment level of a varsity-level sport, but still want to stay in shape and be involved in a team environment, this is a great way to do so.
Some club sports are serious, too. Even though club sports are not funded the way varsity sports are, at some schools they are well organized enough that money is raised to help support the team. Traveling can even be involved in club sports, which can make it a lot of fun and a lot more competitive.
