Club Sports


Xavier University Club Sports strives to offer the university community a platform to participate in collegiate athletics, community involvement, and service. We value student leadership, teamwork, ethical and responsible behavior on and off the field, sportsmanship, and respect for all.

As the members are active participants in the leadership and decision making process of the clubs, clubs may vary in focus and programming. The teams hold practices two to four times per week and all of clubs are required to have a coach. Our clubs do not have large budgets; therefore the clubs must fundraise and charge membership dues to subsidize their existence. The teams compete against other club teams from universities throughout the Midwest/ Many of the club sports play in leagues and can compete for a national championship.  Participation in the Club Sports program is an excellent way to develop leadership skills, meet new friends with similar interests, stay in shape and enhance athletic skills.
