Club Sports are registered student organizations formed by individuals with a common interest in a sport or recreational activity that exists to promote and develop interest in that particular activity. Clubs may be instructional, recreational, competitive, or some combination thereof. Because they are student-initiated and student-managed, club sports provide members numerous opportunities for leadership and decision-making. Effective leadership of officers and the degree of involvement of its members directly determine the success and strength of the club. Students interested in forming a new club should contact the Director of Intramural Sports & Recreation.
