Miscellaneous Clubs

SWCHS fishing clubFishing Club

One of the nation’s fastest growing high school sports was added to our clubs in the spring of 2018. The goal of this club is to introduce kids to the sport of fishing, provide opportunities to compete in school events, and give those looking for more competitive events the opportunity to do so.

Equestrian Club

Riders of all levels and skill, as well as non-riders, are encouraged to participate in the Equestrian Club! Students do not have to own a horse to be a club member; however, a passion for horses is required. There is the opportunity to earn a letter by participating in virtually any style of riding, including Dressage, English and Western Equitation/Pleasure, Eventing, Hunter/ Jumper, Saddle Seat and Western Games. Non-riding members are encouraged to participate by contributing to the club using their skills such as photography and/or writing, as well as assisting riding members in their competitive events. Club members will meet several times during the year to share in their passion for these animals with informative seminars, serving together in equestrian-related volunteer opportunities, as well as just plain “horsing around” together!

Knowledge Bowl is a high school club where 4-person teams play against other schools in written and oral quiz bowl competitions. The oral rounds pit three teams against each other, with the first team buzzing in with the right answer getting a point. The questions cover academic topics such as science, history, math, literature, geography, and the arts. The Knowledge Bowl season runs from December through February, with practices once a week and 3–4 meets at area high schools.

The team practices every Monday from 3–4:30 p.m. in Room 138. Everyone is welcome and no experience is necessary!
