A sport club is a student organization, recognized by Campus Recreation and formed by students motivated by a common interest and desire to participate in a favorite sport activity. Clubs vary in focus and programming, since student members manage the operation of the club and decide on club activities. Clubs actively compete locally, regionally, or nationally against colleges and universities.
Clubs offer opportunities for learning a new sport, improving existing sport skills, practicing and playing for fun, and/or competing at various levels. Club officers develop valuable leadership skills, through successful management of administrative affairs and intra-club dynamics.
Campus Recreation oversees and advises all Sport Clubs. Clubs must operate within the Sport Clubs Organization framework of policies and procedures which are in place to promote safety and manage risk. Clubs are funded by the Student Government Association.
