This fall kicks off more than just Division-I sports at WSU; the club life in Pullman is just starting to pick up momentum. Whether it is fencing, tennis, rugby, or horse polo, there is a variety of clubs for students to participate in.
For those looking for a test of endurance, the WSU CrossFit Club involves a variety of high intensity strength and conditioning exercises. WSU CrossFit allows students to compete in CrossFit tournaments across the nation.
As soccer season inches closer at WSU, the Men’s and Women’s Soccer Clubs are recruiting new members. WSU Men’s Club Soccer is holding tryouts on Sept. 11 and 13 at Grimes Way Turf Field.
In its first season, the WSU Wrestling Club placed second in the Washington State and Northwest Conference tournaments. The WSU Wrestling Club is holding open mats at Smith Gym.
Students can become a part of Cougar history in the WSU Bowling Club, with past members winning national titles.
Last year, the WSU Women’s Rugby team won its second Division-II National Championship in four years after they defeated Winona State 62-5. The team is actively recruiting new players willing to learn about rugby.
WSU Club Sports also offer aquatic opportunities. The Women’s Water Polo Club is adding any strong swimmers who want to add something new to their swimming routine.
Sports clubs aren’t just about sports.
The Sports Club Federation Council (SCFC) makes sure that each club focuses on teamwork, sportsmanship, campus involvement, and a positive public image.
Each year, the SCFC awards clubs with titles such as Club of the Year. This award went to the Women’s Rugby Team for their championship success. Other decorations include the Sports Club Federation (SCF) Sportsmanship Award and the SCF Member of the Year Award.
