Dave talks with Jenna Crocket and Arlene Santana about their competitive vision for MSU Denver Club Poms this spring.
Being involved with a sports team can be a vital part of staying healthy and is an excellent opportunity for a student to share their passion for sport with others. Campus Recreation’s three sport programs offer different ways to participate.
The Club Sports program provides an opportunity for students to develop their athletic interest with other students who share the same passion. All Club Sport teams are led by students and focus on participation and competition. Club Sports teams are very organized, have elected student-leadership boards, collect membership dues, practice regularly, travel off-campus and compete regionally and nationally to represent the University.
MSU Denver Club Archery is the newest addition to the Club Sports lineup! This competitive team is a great place for students looking to develop or hone their archery skills while representing MSU Denver on a regional – and hopefully national – level. The Club will be joining USA Archery’s Collegiate Archery Program and will begin competing soon. *Practices and competitions are off-campus*

MSU Denver has a long history of fielding Club Baseball teams in the National Club Baseball Association (NCBA). For the 2021-2022 school year, the tradition continues…
There are a number of former NCBA baseball players who began their careers on the club team at their school before moving on to play for their NCAA Div. I or Div. II programs. Several others have gone on to play professional baseball in the independent leagues. Major League Baseball made full acknowledgement of the league’s talent when the Florida Marlins drafted Colorado State pitcher Nathan Nowicki in the 19th round of the 2003 Amateur Player Draft. Nate holds the designation of being the first player drafted out of the NCBA, but was certainly not the last.
Each season ends with the chance to play for a District title and thus the chance to play in the DII World Series!

MSU Denver Club Hockey competes in the ACHA Division II West Region. We play a competitive 30 game schedule including 15 conference games as a member of the Big Mountain Hockey Conference.

MSU Denver has a private locker room and player’s lounge at the Ice Centre at the Promenade in Westminster, CO. We practice twice a week and play home games there.

MSU Denver Men’s Club Lacrosse competes at the Division II level of the Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA). Thanks to many dedicated players, coaches, and alumni we broke onto to national scene quickly, making our first trip to the conference championship during the 2016 season. After a tough loss, the team rallied the following season capturing the program’s first conference championship and a bid to the National Championship tournament as one of the top 16 teams in the country. With the taste of the trophy still fresh in their mouths, the Roadrunners have no plans of giving up the title of RMLC Division II Champions. The 2021 season is fast approaching and we are so excited to see all of you fans out in the stands this year!

The Intramural Sports program offers Campus Recreation members opportunities to participate in traditional sport and esports activities. Teams simply arrive near the start of their game and play on-campus in the gym. Campus Recreation provides game officials and develops the rules, and league play over the course of the semester is offered alongside one-day tournaments and events.
The Spring 2022 schedule is still under review and development as we continue to monitor the pandemic and its impact on the health and safety of our members.
The Open Recreation program includes drop-in activities such as basketball, volleyball and indoor soccer in the gym. Open Recreation allows members to play casual pick-up games, or just shoot the basketball around for a few, at various times throughout the week.
