Intramural and Club Sports
Competitive Club Sports:
The Norwich club golf team is in its second year as a developing and competing club team. The club has a professional from a local country club as its head coach to assist anyone with questions or lessons. Last year the team played in four matches and practiced between the months of September into October. This year members hope to play into spring as other schools do. We have a total of three matches and glad to say that we are hosting our first one on September 28th. Only the top six members can compete in each match, utilizing the four lowest scores. The main goal of the club origination is to have fun and continue to bring back Norwich golf.
Men’s Ice Hockey Club
The Norwich University ACHA (Club) Hockey team is a Division 2 member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association and North East Collegiate Hockey Association. The team competes with other ACHA and NECHA sanctioned teams and prep schools throughout New England and Eastern New York. The team competes for a NECHA title as well as a spot into the ACHA regional and national tournaments. The team holds tryouts every October and anyone interested is encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Track and Field Club
The Norwich University Club Track and Field Team was founded many years ago; however, it has been dormant since 2005. Spring 2013 will be the second season back on campus. The events for the club range from running the 50m dash to the 5k race. Also, the only field event as of now is the shot-put (men’s and women’s). The team is open to any NU students interested and there are no qualification times or distances. We meet three times a week for practice and have several planned races: The USATF New England Indoor Track and field Championships hosted by Harvard University and the USATF Adirondack Championship Meet in Albany, NY. We are continually working on gaining the funds necessary so that as many people as possible can go to these meets. The NUTF has the goal of becoming a varsity sport for the university. “From many events, one team.”
Mountaineering Rock Climbing Club
Mountaineering Rock Climbing Club is for those who like the outdoors and want to learn a new skill. There are several trips throughout the year to places all over New England, run by students and faculty alike.
The Norwich University Paintball club operates and plays on the campus paintball field as well as traveling to big games, scenarios and tournaments all over the Northeast. There is something for every style of play with our competitive speedball team competing in the NCPA, a pump team competing in the Gravity League and a well known scenario team that travels to big games such as Castle Conquest, and The West Point Combat Classic.
Ski and Snowboard Club
The Norwich University Ski and Snowboard Club was founded in 2010 by a group of students dedicated to the sports of skiing and snowboarding. This group of individuals made it their goal to bring all Norwich University skiers and snowboarders together to cultivate a common interest. The club looks to create bonding, fundraisers and events through this common interest. You can visit us on Facebook.
The Norwich University Soccer Club is dedicated to allowing anyone to enjoy the sport of soccer. We provide a friendly but competitive environment for anyone who is interested in playing. We compete in local leagues in indoor and outdoor seasons, with practice being optional and every day. Come out and enjoy the music and the game!
