About Sport Clubs:

A 'Sport Club' is a campus group that provides recreation, competition, and/or instruction in sport-related activities. Sport Clubs are an integral part of the Department of Recreation Services, designed to supplement intercollegiate, intramural, and student/faculty recreation programs, as well as physical education classes. There are more than 50 sport clubs, all run primarily on student initiative and leadership.

Every year there is an annual Sport Club Activity Fair held on campus. The Sport Club Activity Fair will be Tuesday, September 3rd in Flanagan Gym (The Barnes Center at the Arch) from 5:30-8:00pm.  Must have a current SU/ESF ID to enter.
