Club sports allow you to keep those competitive juices flowing, playing as a representative of St. Bonaventure University against club sports teams from other colleges and universities.
But it's more than that. As a club sports participant you'll grow as a person, learn the value of teamwork and fair play, and have the opportunity to mature as a leader through four years of practice and competition with new friends and teammates as devoted
to your favorite sport as you.
You might even have the opportunity to compete again in front of your hometown friends and neighbors — this time as a Bonnie.
Recreational club sports are internal clubs at the university that do not currently compete against teams from other universities. As these clubs grow, the option to compete externally will be explored!
Students who play club sports at SBU have access to full-time certified athletic training staff for their care and treatment.
The athletic training staff attend many games on campus and staff a club sports training room, located in Room 127 of Doyle Hall, adjacent to the Center for Student Wellbeing.
The training room is equipped with ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation equipment, a hydrocollator for heat treatments, as well as other equipment for the prevention and treatment of injuries.
