Club Sports

Enhance your experience and increase your chance of success with College Club Sports

We cannot emphasize enough the growth, opportunity, and fun that comes with participating in athletics at the college level, no matter your ability.

Whether you’re a seasoned varsity starter or never played a sport in your life, club sports are positive doorways to instant connections with like-minded students. You’ll be quickly connected with a core crew that stirs your competitive drive, is an awesome stress reliever, and provides social engagement that cannot be duplicated in any other way.

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 in the RRF.
