Sport clubs are registered organizations founded and administered by students in accordance with
the University, the Division of Student Success and the Department of Recreational Services.
Sport Clubs are made up of individuals that have a desire to compete or participate in a sport and/or
activity on a competitive level throughout their college career. These Sport Clubs are formed because
no varsity team exists, or because the talent, dedication and interest in the sport demand an
opportunity other than varsity athletics or intramurals. Sport Clubs function under student
leadership and the monies needed to support them are generated through membership dues,
fundraisers, donations and the Department of Recreational Services. Teams hold regular practices
and often compete in an organized league with other collegiate Sport Clubs.
All currently enrolled Georgia State students are eligible to join a club. Faculty, staff and Perimeter students are also eligible to join a club but may be excluded from competitive play. Alumni are not eligible to join a club.
