Club Sports

Competitive and non-competitive organized clubs give students who have an interest in a specific sport the opportunity to meet and continue to learn basic skills. Competitive organizations provide students with a high level competition and the opportunity to compete in various state, regional, national and international contests and tournaments against clubs from various other colleges and universities. Non-competitive organizations provide students the opportunity to train and learn new activities and skills.

Club Sports are classified into three tiers: Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3.

Cost: Club sports are pay-to-play organizations. Financial obligations vary depending upon the sport/activity, schedule length, travel, ect.

Joining: You must be able to meet academic, financial and physical requirements for the club that you would like to join.  Please contact the club president for specific information. You may also contact University Recreation at 906-635-2602.
