Club Sports are student-led, student-run organizations that compete against other colleges and universities across the country. Many of our Club teams are highly competitive and strive to be national champions.
There are 31 teams. Expand all into a list.
Each Club Sport either sets its own membership guidelines or follows membership rules set by their league or governing body. In all cases, a club’s membership must include a minimum of 90% U‑M students and (if a club allows for non-student participation) a maximum of 10% non-students (U‑M faculty and staff). Fees are determined by each team.
The student officers (a minimum of three per club) work in cooperation with Recreational Sports and are responsible for the day-to-day operation and management of their club. Officers have the unique opportunity to learn about athletic team leadership, fundraising, logistics, equipment management and financial operations.
All Club Sports teams appoint their own coaches—some are paid, some are volunteers. Teams must have at least one non-student coach; students may serve as assistant coaches. Coaches register with the Club Sports Office at the Intramural Sports Building.
Each June, Recreational Sports evaluates their ability to add new clubs to the Club Sports program. Any new Clubs will be selected from the applications received. The process takes time. Here’s how to get started.
When you join a Club Sports team, you’re joining a group of national champions. In fact, the University of Michigan has been frequently represented in Club Sport national tournaments:
