Play your favorite sport by joining a sports club created for students, by students.

The sports club program at Wingate University brings students together to stay fit and have fun. But what makes our program different is that clubs are organized by students like you.

Sport clubs can be instructional, competitive, recreational or performance based. If you’re interested in joining or want more information, search the organizations link on WUsync.  Most clubs will attend Street Fair on the first day of classes. All will host an interest meeting early in the semester. Contact Campus Recreation for more information.

The dance team performs at traditional campus events and during halftime of home basketball games. Tryouts and practices are part of participating on the Wingate University Dance Team.  An interest meeting is held early in the fall.
