In addition to varsity teams Hamilton also fields squads at the non-varsity, or club, level. Club programs provide a competitive experience beyond the campus. Some club programs have coaches and many compete in leagues with varsity programs. Teams may compete against clubs from other schools or against other Hamilton teams, representing a residence hall, a group of friends or any other organization interested in playing a sport for fun.
Club & Intramural Sports
Intramural activities are strictly on-campus activities. Club sports are the level just below varsity, while intramurals are more recreational – although they can still get somewhat competitive. It just takes a few interested students and a league or tournament can be established. Intramurals enable students to continue their athletic interest even if they are not able or willing to make the commitment to a varsity sport; they provide a fitness and stress outlet for students and a social network for many.
