The Recreation and Wellness Center’s Sport Clubs Showcase was the biggest and most interactive opportunity to-date for students who want to get involved.
On August 24, there was a lot of action including shuttlecocks flying, volleyballs spiking, wrestlers pinning, basketballs dribbling, rugby players scrumming, kendo members challenging with debana-waza, and softball and baseball players throwing.
More than 300 Knights came out to play and learn about the 42 Sport Clubs, and how to join the teams. Knights engaged with club members on Courts 1 and 2, RWC Park, Baseball and Softball Complex and the UCF Club grass fields.
UCF Sport Clubs have won more than 30 national titles since 2002 including national championships in 2017 in wakeboarding, kiteboarding, paintball and in individual title in wrestling (Justus Griffith, 133 pound weight class).
Students can connect with a club team by stopping by the RWC Room 246, emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting Knight Connect: ucf.campuslabs.com/engage/organizations.
