Colorado College believes participation in sports to be an integral part of a well-ordered program of liberal education and, therefore, encourages the widest possible participation in sports by individual members of the college community.
The college is interested and committed to sponsoring and supporting club sports since these activities traditionally have a large number of participants, contribute to the development of health and physical fitness, and have a definite carry-over value to later life. The college is committed to a philosophy of sport that stresses the value and enjoyment of participation in the physical capacities.
Alongside competition and performance, the club sports program places a high degree of emphasis on student initiative, organization, leadership, decision making and team management. Taken as a whole, these program elements allow participants to shape their own experience to a much greater degree than any other athletic program at the college.
