Club Sports

The Wake Forest Club Sports Program promotes participation in a variety of sport and activities, ranging in competitive to recreational. The Campus Recreation department provides professional administration and advising but emphasis is placed on fostering student development and leadership through sports.

Our Club leaders organize and run their own club while developing leadership, financial, and organizational management skills.  The team collectively create goals that meet the member needs.

The Sports Program office is located in the WF Wellbeing Center in Suite B331 and can answer questions for current students or prospective students.
