Mason Club Sports provides students a wide variety of competitive opportunities. Our offerings include many of the main stream sports, but also many not so well know activities. Clubs have a competitive range from regional competition to yearly participation in U S National College Club Level Championships. The experience level required to participate depends on the sport and risk of injury. The majority of clubs encourage complete novices to join and learn a new activity. Clubs are partially funded by the University and require fund raising by each club to reach their goals. Many clubs must practice and compete off campus where the necessary facilities are located. It is typical for a club to hold two to four practices per week during their primary season.
Club Sports offer students a chance to compete at a high level without the time commitment of a D-I/Varsity sport. The Clubs are student led and coached by students, adult volunteers and in some instances by paid coaches. The types of sports offerings at Mason have doubled over the past ten years and will continue to evolve/expand as student interest dictates. The “club sports experience” at Mason is enjoyed by nearly 700 students every year and continues to play an ever expanding role in campus life. All students with an interest in a sport are encouraged to check out a new activity at the club level or to continue a previous sport. Club Sports at Mason represent a significant student leadership opportunity for those that seek one.
