        TeamREC Employment

        Club Sports

        The University of New Haven Club Sports program consists of various recognized student organizations that are recreational or athletic in nature, and who have a desire to develop students' skills and interests for specific sports. Each club sport must compete, or have plans to compete, on the intercollegiate level, regionally or nationally, within a recognized national governing body.  Involvement with Club Sports is voluntary.
