Sport Clubs

Sport clubs give students the chance to play in non-varsity sports while developing skills in administration, organization, and fundraising. Clubs may be instructional, recreational, competitive, or a combination thereof. Each club is overseen and advised by the University Recreation department, but are student led and managed. Some clubs compete with other universities or colleges but are not regulated by the NCAA.

Make sure to follow us on Facebook @URecSpiders and Instagram @urecspiders.



Most sport clubs at UR have a full slate of officers (president, vice president, secretary, treasurer), making the sport club program an excellent venue for student leadership opportunities. In addition, University Recreation staff support the administrative efforts of the clubs.
