At some point during your time at Auburn you'll hear the words “club sports.”
Whether at Camp War Eagle or sitting in class on a Tuesday morning, chances are you've encountered a club sport participant. If you’re involved in club sports or are thinking about becoming involved, the benefits are useful in everyday life.
An expectation of club sports is it will keep you in shape, and it does just that. Being involved with a club sport team means attending practice (from two to four times a week) and participating in regular games. Yes, that means pausing a current Netflix obsession and getting your heart rate going. A benefit in the long run.
No matter how many friends are in your “social circle,” club sports is a great way to meet people and to find others with similar interests. Being a part of a team leads you to meet people you might never encounter otherwise.
Besides making new friends, club sports prepares you for different social settings and potential jobs post-college. I mean, what company wouldn't like that you are capable of working successfully with a team?
Finals week is tough for us all. Even a normal test day is stressful. Participating in club sports can help you de-stress, have some fun, and keep physically and mentally fit.
You can find a list of club sports available to Auburn University students here.
Be well, Auburn.

A true Auburn legacy, Brooklyn stepped onto Pat Dye Field at the age of five and knew immediately she wanted to follow in her family’s footsteps.
She’s not just an avid dog lover, but a dog parent—she works so her mutt can have a better life. Her greatest talent is binge watching Netflix (she’s that person who goes through nine years of television in two weeks). Her "obsession collection" consists of chocolate-covered strawberries, candles, Lush cosmetics, and herbal teas.
She strives to live by the last few lines of the Auburn Creed believing in her country and doing her best to serve her home—the land of freedom given by those who defend it.
