San Diego State has ton’s of great athletic programs that are in the lime light such as Football, Basketball. Baseball, Softball, Women’s Soccer, Women’s Volleyball, Women’s Water Polo, Women’s Swim and Dive, Women’s Track and Field and many others. Most sports fans have no clue that San Diego State has some extremely competitive club teams on campus. The following is a list of the most competitive club teams on campus Men’s Rowing, Cycling &Triathlon, Dance, Rugby, Men’s Soccer, Women’s Soccer, Surfing, Tennis, Men’s Volleyball, Women’s Volleyball, Men’s Water Polo and Women’s Water Polo.
The San Diego State Women’s Water Polo Club had an amazing streak as the best club team in the country for five weeks. Unfortunately they dropped a few matches and are currently ranked 4th or 5th. This season the San Diego State University Women’s Water Polo Club won the Pacific Coast Division regular season title. That was the very first outright Pacific Coast Region title in the history of San Diego State. The team has not played a game for the past three weeks. However, they will be ready to compete for a championship in four weeks. The San Diego State Aztec Aquaplex (5375 Remington Rd, San Diego, CA 92115) will play host to the Pacific Coast Division Championship on April 12th and April 13th. For more information on the seeds and times please check out the club website. The winner of the Pacific Coast Division Championship advances to play for the National Championship in Ohio.
“Not a whole lot is given to [club sports], whether it is facility usage or funding, and yet they put in four days a week of practice, plus their events on the weekends, and they get out of it more than some varsity programs,” he said. “We have a handful of club sports that compete against varsity programs and actually beat them in that sport. That’s just a testament to how dedicated and hard-working these players are.” – www.gvsustudentlifesports.com
I feel that the quote above is perfect for those who do not know how club sports are funded. The normal teams on a college campus in which scholarships are receive most of the funding. The athletes who are on the club teams are not scholarship athletes. They are forced to pay for schooling, facility, gear, trips to play other schools and much more.
