Current Clubs

There are 17 competitive club sport teams at SCU that compete locally, regionally and nationally against other universities.

Club Descriptions and Websites

The Campus Recreation Club Sports program is currently capped with 17 competitive clubs. We will not be accepting applications for any additional Club Sports for the upcoming academic year. Students who wish to be part of a competitive team should consider joining one of these clubs, playing intramural sports, or signing up for a local sports league. Students who want to start a “recreational” club that will not compete against other universities will need to go through Associated Students to become a Registered Student Organization.

Club websites are not maintained by Campus Recreation. Views expressed on club websites are not necessarily the views of the Campus Recreation Program.

The Boxing club is made up of SCU students who have an interest in keeping fit, learning self defense, and training to fight competitively. No experience is necessary to join the club; in fact, most of the members are totally new to the sport. For those who wish to take their skills to the next level, the competitive portion of this club participates in intercollegiate bouts, representing SCU at the regional and national level. For more information, contact the team president.

Women’s Rugby
The Women’s Rugby club is also known as BRUWS (Bronco Rugby Union Women’s Side). This club provides an opportunity for women at SCU to get involved with the campus community and build lasting friendships. The team practices three times a week, and competes in matches during the Winter Quarter. They represent SCU in the Pacific collegiate region of USA Rugby. For more information contact the team president.

The Sailing Club team practices and sails in nearby Redwood City. The club competes in collegiate dinghy regattas all along the West Coast. Collegiate sailing primarily competes in Flying Juniors, but also in Laser class sailboats. Sailing is both exciting and highly rewarding as the team continues to build a strong reputation.

The Swim club welcomes all levels of swimmers! Their practices offer challenging swim workouts, as well as a chance to be social with students who have similar interests. As a club, they compete with various University swim programs in the region.

The Triathlon club is a competitive group, training to be a serious contender at the collegiate triathlon level, while still having fun. They strive to stay in peak condition, both physically and mentally, by pushing each other during training sessions. The team is open to all students, experienced or not! The main goals are to train hard, train smart, and have fun. For more information, contact the Triathlon Team Captain.

Men’s Ultimate
Santa Clara Men’s Ultimate is a fast-growing program that aims to be competitive nationally. The team has improved on its post-season finish each of the last three years, and had its highest ever finish at regionals last year. Students with no previous playing experience are welcome; however, those who aim to make the Select squad are expected to practice regularly and work hard. For more information, check out the team website.
