The UCCS Club Sports Program offer students with a passion for a particular sport the opportunity to learn more about the sport, develop additional skills while practicing or playing the sport, build character, and establish lasting friendships. These student-run organizations, all competitive by nature, emphasize leadership and education through the sports it offers. UCCS Club Sports often travel and host games and events in collaboration with other colleges and universities.

The UCCS Club Sports program consists of 18 sports with close to over 400 student-athletes. Club Sport teams travel across the state and the country competing in regional and national tournaments in their respective leagues. The UCCS Club Sports program has grown tremendously in the last few years and continues to grow each and every year. Click on "Join a Club" to become a part of this great program!
