Since the initial inclusion of the Rugby team in 1967, Sports Clubs at UCSC have been a focal point of student activities. The teams are student driven and serve as a crucial competitive outlet. All coaches are strictly volunteer. The basic philosophy of the Sports Club Program is two fold; First and foremost, it is to provide a healthy and supportive atmosphere that celebrates sports as culture. Secondly, it is to be as competitive as possible while keeping within the parameters of sportsmanship and goodwill. There is no true uniformity between Sports Club teams. Some compete against other schools in set leagues while others have a more casual approach. Some compete against other Division III schools while others compete against the big schools in Division I. The single unifying aspect of all Sports Club Teams is their passion for sport.

All Sports Club participants are expected to be fit and able to practice and compete without hindrance. Some sports require a physical in order to participate. All participants are required to fill out a Medical History Update form. Due to the low level of funding for Sports Club Teams, you may be expected to pay for team fees, uniforms and other costs associated with participating on a team.
