    Club sports are always a great option, as are intramural sports. The entry above that talks about DI and DII sports is dead on. If you play for a DIII school, it's a different story.

    My suggestion is that even if you think you are no good, try out. If you suck your freshman year, what makes you think you will be able to play by your junior year if you don't join the team and learn their techniques, plays, etc? You have more of a chance of making it as a freshman and playing through your junior year than just showing up and thinking you'll make it as a junior when they are looking to fill spots of seniors and juniors whio will be leaving with players they will be able to develop over the years.

    In short, go for it!

    Good luck ( =

    It depends on the school. If they have Division 1 atheletic programs you probably won't be able to walk on without much experience. If it's Division 2 or 3 you might have a chance. But there are always club sports which are for non-scholorship players and are more for fun.
