    Does Fishing count as an EC?

    I know this is a weird topic but I'm not really sure what counts as an EC other than Volunteering/Research/RSO's and clubs etc. Do you need to join a fishing club for it to count as an EC? Or does fishing only count as a hobby?

    Club Sports Team

    I was on a very intensive club sports team during college for 3 months and I quit due to an injury. Would including this activity on my application be risky since it's not something I stuck with/might suggest lack of commitment to ADCOMs?
