Abstract

Club sports provide opportunities for college students who may not want to or cannot participate in varsity athletics (Rundio & Buning, 2022). Club sports provide college students with physical and social engagements. These engagements can vary from orchestrating meetings, practices, and dates of competition (Lee, Liu, & Bentley, 2024), in addition to a variety of health benefits. College students get to incorporate their physical talents and interests within a recreational environment without the constraints of the pressures from varsity athletics. Rundio & Buning (2022) states that “in one school year, approximately two million students participated in club sports in the USA alone,” (p.3) compared to 430,000 students in varsity athletic programs (Pennington, 2008).
