Student Testimonies:

Tyler shares how participating in sport clubs helped him develop lifelong skills:

“I have gained many great skills and qualities such as being a leader, being able to work with a team, learning to adapt, and being coachable.”

Tyler Gonzalez, Men’s Lacrosse, Business Administration Major, Class of 2021

Kimberly, Alexander, and Callie explain how sport club have enhanced their experience:

Being a transfer student is hard. You don't have the friends that people made as freshman in the dorms, so you kind of come in with a disadvantage, socially. You really have to get involved to find friends other than those in your classes. Joining a sport club helped me find a solid group of girls that have turned into my Chico family.

Kimberly Canisso, Women’s Water Polo, Kinesiology Major, Class of 2020

“The waterski team is like a family, and it has been a very fun and positive experience.”

Alexander Leeds, Water Ski, Mechanical Engineering Major, Class of 2022

“This has given me another group of friends, it has helped me feel more at home at Chico State, it has given me more opportunities, and helped improve my drive in both academics and sports.”

Callie Norton, Women’s Water Polo, Agriculture Major, Class of 2021
