About the Sport Clubs Programs

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.

Form a Club

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.
