I know that colleges look at extra-cirriculars, but i don't know if it's better to participate in a sport, and fewer clubs, or more clubs, and minus the sport.
I'm in both spring track and winter track, and it takes up a lot of my time. When the season starts, i have no time to do anything else b/c it takes up such a large portion of my schedual:
~everyday after school, practice is from 3:15-6:00....we usually also have weekend practices from 9:00am-11:00am on saturdays. For winter track, meets are on fridays and saturdays. Friday meets usually last until 11pm, so i don't get home until about midnight. Saturday meets start at 7am and ends around 2-3pm. For spring track meets are on wednesdays and invitaionals are on saturdays. wed. meets go until about 9pm-10pm. and invitationals are all day.
I need to know how important sports are compared to clubs to colleges, because my sports are taking much more time than clubs would. Thanks.

I think your committment to track is quite satisfactory--don't worry if you don't have clubs.

Just get on NHS and do your track.

is being an avid debate team member / officer on the team just as adequate as being on a sports team?

sorry to say but i dont think so... you think that the time you put into debate team equals the time rockerlinda/other atheletes put into their sports?
even if you are extremely passionate about it, a sport is a bigger commitment than debate team i think

Aoe-matt's right. The time committment with sports is definitly bigger. However, if you were an avid member in more than 1 club, it could definitely measure out. In my opinion, don't worry so much about what ad coms want to see. They want to see how the activity affected you. If you're totally ipassive toward sports and would gain personally from clubs instead, go for it. Just do your thing.

are we measuring extracurricular benefit using time commitment as a criterion? if thats the case, then yes, im sure sports wins there. but what about debate including academic/public speaking disciplines, whereas sports is more or less physical exertion and team work ( i play tennis too-not on school team though - so don't get me wrong about sports). even if we are using time as a the criterion, debate meetings are relatively short, about an hour, but competitions are from 7am to 5pm on a saturday, excluding large college invititationals (HYC) which take place over a few days! shouldn't captainship on a debate team be just as valuable/more valuable than an ordinary JV/Varsity Sports member?

Aoe- again, the time committment is greater in sports. But benefit, as in improving yourself in an area such as public speaking, could very likely be more valuable depending on many factors. So I guess all and all, it depends what you mean by something being just as adequate.
