 What is a club sport?

A club sport is a registered student organization intended to promote the common interests of a particular sport or activity through participation and competition.

Participation in a club sport is completely voluntary. Membership is open to all current students regardless of skill level. No student may be discriminated against by any organization at Haverford College for reasons of age, color, ethnic or national origin, disability, marital status, political or social affiliation, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation.

To be recognized as a club sport at Haverford, each organization must agree to abide by the guidelines and expectations outlined the Club Sports Handbook.

Club sport practices and matches are limited to Haverford and Bryn Mawr college students whose names appear on the official roster. Alumni/ae or students on leave are specifically excluded.

Eligibility for some club sports may depend on various league or divisional rules established by outside organizations. Practices and schedules vary since all activities are organized and administered by students.

The women's club soccer team is made up of a great group of women who love to play soccer. We play games against club teams from other colleges in the area, both at home and away.

We practice 2-3 times per week and play between 5-8 games per season.

Club soccer is designed to be competitive and fun and we'd love to have you come join us at any practice!
