    under that definition, marching band should also be considered a sport. yes we get p.e. credit for participating, but when people ask you what sport you do and you tell them... they all say that isn't a sport. marching band requires as much if not more physical prowess and endurance than any sport. i would like to say, try both watching a marching band show, and try participating in marching band. then tell me that it is not a sport.

    Pretty sure the classification by schools on what is considered a "sport" and what is considered a "club" has to do with Title IX and the funding that the programs receive to participate in events.
