Club Sports

Club Sports allow students to continue to compete in their sport of choice at a collegiate level, improve their athletic skill set, and gain opportunities for personal growth and development of leadership skills. The success of individual Club Sports can be attributed to the dedication and drive of student leaders.

Our goal is to offer the most comprehensive and diversified Club Sports Programs possible in an effort to meet the needs and interests of students. Each Club is organized and maintained through student efforts, with advisement from faculty, staff and Campus Recreation.

Club Sports provide opportunities for students with similar interests to participate in various sport and recreational activities. Club Sports bridge the gap between intramural and intercollegiate athletics by providing competition, participation in tournaments and opportunities to practice. Most clubs supplement their budget through membership fees and fundraising.

Club privileges include:

  • Use of Saginaw Valley name and images
  • A budget allotted by Campus Recreation
  • University and athletic facilities when available

Why Club Sports?

Club Sports gives students an opportunity to take part in the leadership, responsibility, and decision-making process of club activities. The success of the club is dependent on the professionalism and leadership shown by the club officers, advisors, and coaches. It is created for students, by students, under the supervision of Campus Recreation staff.

Clubs members nominate student officers who run the day-to-day operations, which include scheduling practices, activities and games, contracting coaches and referees, arranging transportation, and budgeting.
