Club Sports

Experiences outweigh costs to play club sports

As the leaves around Tuscaloosa start to turn brown and temperatures finally – mercifully – begin to dip, fall club sports are preparing to kick off their seasons as well. It can be an exciting time of the year for athletes on club sports teams, but it also signals the annual arrival of a not-so-exciting prospect: paying club dues. 

Men's rugby looking to continue recent success

The University of Alabama’s oldest club sports team, men’s rugby, begins another fall season looking to replicate the recent run of victories over the past few seasons.  The coaches and veterans of the club are busy preparing a new wave of freshman players to replace departed seniors who led the runs to a 2016 Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Conference (SCRC) championship and a 2015 second place finish.   The team has established a winning tradition over the past five years that is unmatched by any other run of success since the club’s founding in 1973.
