What is the difference between varsity sports, intramural sports, and sport clubs? 
Varsity sport teams must follow NCAA rules and regulations. Practices and games are mandatory and travel is required to play other universities. Some teams allow walk-on tryouts, others purely recruit. Varsity sports usually require a full year commitment. Intramural sports are competitive or recreational sports played at Virginia Tech among other VT students and faculty/staff. Seasons usually last 3-6 weeks. No travel or practice is required. Sport clubs play other colleges and universities, but are not part of NCAA; they are supported by the Recreational Sports department. Practices and games are determined by club officers. Sport clubs may not require a full year commitment.
