Club members have the opportunity to become involved in the leadership and decision-making for their clubs. All club sports are student-governed by an elected slate of officers. Club sports are open to the beginner as well as the advanced performer. Club Sports funds are allocated by Student Council. Scholarships are not available for members. What are the differences between Varsity, Intramurals and Club Sports?
Varsity teams must follow NCAA and ACC rules and regulations. Practices and Games are mandatory and travel is required to play other universities. Some teams allow walk-on tryouts, others purely recruit. Varsity sports usually require a full year commitment. Club Sports play other colleges and universities, but are not part of NCAA or ACC, they request funding from student council, and practices and games are determined by club officers. Club sports may not require a full year commitment. Intramural Sports are competitive sports played at UVA among other members of the UVA community. Seasons usually last 3-8 weeks. No travel or practice is required.
