Club Sports are competitive sports teams that practice weekly and compete against other colleges. While Club Sports are different than varsity athletics many of the same principles apply, however with Club Sports the time commitment is not as significant and there are no scholarships.
Club Sports are a great way to stay involved in sports you love and get to meet other students at BCC who also love that sport.
The requirements to play a club sport at BCC vary depending on the sport you choose. You must be a BCC student in good standing with the college and be able to attend club practices and competitions.
