Sport Clubs



Sport Clubs are recognized student organizations that are established to promote and develop common sports/recreation-related interests. Sport Clubs provide opportunities for students to develop leadership, management and organizational skills in addition to enjoying the benefits of competition, physical activity and social fellowship.

Campus Recreation Services provides encouragement, guidance, and general supervision of Sport Clubs; however, the emphasis in the Sport Clubs program, as a whole, is on student leadership and participation.
