Choose any sport and you will find the camaraderie of teammates, the opportunity to learn from coaches, and the competitive spirit you are looking for.
A little known fact of Reed College is we do have students who compete on athletic teams. Believe it or not some Reed students find time in their day to practice or compete. Typically our teams practice twice a week and compete once a week during the peak season.
All club sports have a specific coach or coaches who work developing the individual talent of the players. Our coaches understand the rigors of our players academic lives and they work hard to develop a well rounded student athletes. Reed may not win every contest, but our student-athletes compete hard and deliver 100% effort on the fields and in the courts.
Reed athletics has had various different sports in it 100 year history (football, baseball, la crosse, swim team etc), a majority of club sport interest is driven by the students desires, program needs and current trends in athletics. The athletic department is always open to development of new programs for students, while taking into consideration budgetary constraints and user numbers for the activity.
It is a mutual expectation between all Reed Physical Education personnel and the student population that all PE events, programs, and classes whether on or off campus remain entirely substance free. A Physical Education sponsored event is any activity that is subsidized in any way by PE department funding or support. PE sponsored activities include, but are not limited to, all PE classes, club team sporting and social events, college vehicle use financed by the PE dept, travel, lodging, or any activity endorsed, promoted and/or fiscally supported by the Reed College Physical Education Department.
