Our Club leaders organize and run their own club while developing leadership, financial, and organizational management skills.

    COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

  • What club sports will be offered this semester?

    Wake Forest offers one of the largest collegiate club sport programs in the country.  Demon Deacons participate in over 3 dozen different recreational and competitive sport clubs.  For the fall semester, for safety reasons, some competitive club sports will not be offered and those that are will operate under proper safety protocols.  Information pertaining to each sport can be obtained by contacting the specific club.

  • What will be different about club sports this semester?

    Wake Forest has reviewed each individual recreational and club sport to determine which can reasonably be offered within guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), NC Department of Health, American College Health Association (ACHA), the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), and other fitness, recreation, and sports professional associations and leagues.  The evaluation determined which sports can and cannot be safely offered for the fall semester and, if they can, what safety protocols are necessary.

  • Will club sport teams be able to compete?

    The University is only permitting essential travel, so competitive sport clubs will not be traveling for the fall semester.  Additionally, Wake Forest is limiting guests on campus, so other collegiate club sport teams will not be permitted to come to campus.  Most other colleges and universities in the region are also not permitting their competitive club sport teams to campus or permitting other university club sport teams to travel to their campus.

  • Are reservations required for practice on fields?

    Yes.  Reservations are still required for clubs to use outdoor fields and courts.  And, once North Carolina moves to Phase III, reservations will also be required for indoor gyms and multi-purpose rooms.
