Club sports at New England College are student driven. In most instances, this means that involved students serve as club managers or coaches. They are intimately involved in the budgeting process and encouraged to set goals for their teams. This also means that active club sports are a dynamic entity--changing with the various interests of the students. If you wish to start a club sport, the power to do so lies in your hands!
