Weber State University offers a variety of club sports, from archery and fencing to traditional sports like hockey and soccer. Weber State also offers two seasons of intramurals, one in the fall semester and another in the spring.
Students can join a league and play sports like basketball, wiffle ball, indoor and sand volleyball, dodgeball and flag football. They can also join tournaments for intramural sports, like basketball, inner tube water polo and kickball.
Each year, clubs put together a team and travel throughout the northwest competing at high levels against other universities.
Because clubs aren’t funded by the NCAA or Weber State, there are no scholarships for the athletes and each member has to pay a fee to be a member of the team.
Weber State offers 17 athletic clubs, but students are able to create new ones or bring back clubs that were once active like bass fishing, scuba and men’s volleyball.
