Enhance your collegiate experience. Participate. Educate. Compete.
The UNLV Sport Clubs Program provides students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to participate, educate, and compete in recreational activities as a means to enhance their collegiate experience and provide a vehicle for a well-rounded education through physical, social, and leadership development. While a club may not be NCAA affiliated, many travel and compete in regional & national competitions against other universities and colleges, as well as contend for their own respective national championships.
The Sport Clubs Program provides participants with the opportunity to:
Develop a feeling of belonging and understanding among individuals and groups
Develop and maintain physical fitness
Practice and refine existing sports skills
Learn new sports skills
Develop leadership skills and capabilities
Develop knowledge and skills to participate in lifelong recreational activities
Develop organization and administrative skills including program planning, delegation of responsibility and authority, group dynamics, fundraising, financial management and public relations
Engage in structured intercollegiate competition
A sport club is a student-initiated and student-led organization whose members are actively involved in determining the objectives and procedures of their club within the guidelines established by UNLV.
In order to form a sport club, interested students must first apply to be a registered organization with the UNLV Division of Student Affairs Student Engagement and Diversity. After one year as a registered student organization, the group may apply to be recognized as a Sport Club and report to Campus Recreational Services located in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Once formally established as a sport club, the club can travel to compete as UNLV and host events on campus.
