Sport Clubs

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 continually grow due to strong student leadership, which is one of the life skills that students 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.
