Center for Student Involvement

Sport club organizations

The primary purpose of the Sport Club Program is to provide opportunities for students to pursue a recreational/athletic interest. The focus of the Sport Club Program combines the aspects of learning new skills, practicing with fellow participants, competing with other clubs, and developing leadership skills.

A registered sport club is a student organization registered with the Center for Student Involvement that has been voluntarily formed by students motivated by a common interest and desire to participate and compete in a particular sport. It exists to promote and develop interest in that activity. Its members learn new skills, refine existing skills, engage in competition, and enjoy the recreational and social fellowship of the activity. The club is led by student officers and succeeds or fails based on student leadership and involvement. Each member must assume the great majority of the financial responsibilities required to participate.
