In addition to sponsoring intercollegiate play in 22 sports for men and women, Hope College offers several opportunities for students to participate in club sports. We offer athletic club opportunities in many areas not represented by varsity sports.
These clubs are student-run and organized with the support of the college. Each club sport plays club teams from other colleges both large and small. Competition can range from very competitive to simply for fun depending on the sport and opponent. Teams hold weekly practices and often travel on weekends for tournaments. Club sports are open to all students interested in the sport regardless of past experience. Clubs are created by interest within the student body.
A neat aspect of club sports is that if a group of students has a strong commitment and determination, they can start a new club team at any time. Club teams are a great way to continue with a sport you love, meet new friends, and stay active.
