What is a sports club? That is a good question! Sports clubs are run by the students, for the students, with a heavy emphasis on student leadership in competition, performance, and team management. A sanctioned sports club provides a program of instruction, recreation, and/or competition in a specific sport or physical activity. Club members primarily organize, govern, develop, and largely fund their own activities through membership fees, grants, and fundraising.
Each club member is responsible for representing Wilfrid Laurier University in a respectable manner, including meeting the regulations set forth by the university which can be found in the Laurier Athletics and Recreation Clubs Manual. This includes but is not limited to appropriate behaviour and avoiding breaches and violations.
