Enhance your college experience and increase your chance of success with Club Sports
Whether you’re a seasoned varsity starter or have never played a sport in your life, club sports are a positive way to build life-long friendships and enrich your college experience. We consider them an integral part of the college selection process.
Making club sports a part of your college search right now can make all the difference!
You’ll be quickly connected with fellow students who stir your competitive drive and provide social engagement that cannot be duplicated any other way. Not only that, it is an awesome stress reliever.
We cannot emphasize enough the growth, opportunity, and fun that comes with participating in athletics at the college level, no matter your ability.
It has been statistically proven that maintaining a consistent level of physical activity, to include involvement in team sports in college increases happiness, GPA, and accountability… at all levels of play. From D-I to intramural club sports, we see a higher retention and graduation rate compared to those who do not participate.*
Ask anyone who has been a part of a collegiate club team, in any sport, and you’re likely hear they wouldn’t have done it any other way!
With over 100 different sports to choose from, Real Frequency is here to connect you with teams, coaches, and current club players to help.
