Colorado College (CC) Club Sports are supervised by the Recreation program, within the Athletics Department, and offers students the ability to compete competitively in 15 different sports. Each team is registered with a local, regional, or national league affiliation and while clubs are supervised by the Athletic Department, the day-to-day operations are run by club-nominated student officers. As a recognized Club Sport, these teams are granted the privilege to use the Colorado College name, are afforded a small budget, and can utilize athletic facilities for club events when available. Additionally, all club participants have access to a full-time certified athletic trainer. 


Colorado College's Club Sports program is a competitive recreational sports program for its students, designed to meet athletic needs not met by existing intramural and intercollegiate programs. Each club is unique in its purpose and operation, but all should reflect positively on both Club Sports as a program and Colorado College as a whole.

Alongside extramural 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.

Although the structure, organization, and execution of each club sport are primarily the responsibility of students, the Club Sports Program provides four main branches of support: human resources, financial resources, athletic training, and dedicated facilities.
