Student Run Organizations

UNL Sport Clubs are comprised of individuals who have a desire to compete or participate in a sport throughout their college career, and exist to develop students' skills, dedication, and interest for specific sports. Each club's level of activity is unique and ranges from regional to national intercollegiate competition. Sport Clubs continue to grow primarily due to strong student leadership, which is one of a variety of life skills that students can develop through their participation with UNL Campus Recreation. Each club is represented on the Sport Clubs Council and is a member of a recognized National Governing Sport Body.

How to Join A Sport Club?

Interested individuals should visit/contact the UNL Campus Rec Center office to get information about joining a sport club. All currently enrolled University of Nebraska-Lincoln students are eligible to join a sport club. Faculty/Staff and those with Campus Recreation secondary memberships are also eligible to join a club but may be excluded from competitive play. Alumni are not eligible to join a sport club.

How to Start a New Club?

Students interested in a sport currently not offered as a apart of the Sport Club program, please contact the Sport Club Staff at Campus Recreation (472-3467). The Sport Clubs Staff will guide you through the necessary approval steps and will assist you in holding an information meeting. Then you will need to coordinate practice times for the new club.
