How to get into Weber Sports

Joining a college sports team as an athlete can be challenging if you’re not recruited for the sport straight out of the gate. Most sports teams’ players are recruited, but there are other options for people who want to join a sports team.

If students want to join an NCAA division team, they can become a walk-on via tryouts. Last semester, football tryouts took place in February.

This fall, new students who want to join should reach out to a coach on the staff and prepare for the tryouts in the new year. Students can look up the sport-specific information they need to become a Weber State athlete.

Weber State also has intramural sports, which are recreational sports students can join for fun. Intramural sports this fall include indoor kickball, soccer and volleyball.

On the Weber State Intramural Sports website, students can register as a free agent and then join a team.

Another option students have is club sports. One of the biggest club sports at Weber State is hockey. Other club sports are men’s and women’s rugby, baseball, lacrosse and more.

Club sports still have recruitments, but if you’re not recruited you can try out by contacting the coach or a representative of that club sport.
