Details & Policies

Membership Rules

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.

Student Leadership

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.

Coaches

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.


Start a New Club

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.

  1. Create a U‑M student organization through the Center for Campus Involvement.
  2. Meet and maintain the following criteria:
    • Be a recognized Student Organization for at least two years
    • Have a minimum of 10 competitive members
    • Demonstrate leadership transition beyond the founding members
    • Have a Regional and/or National Governing Body for the sport
    • Be affiliated with and compete in a collegiate level league or conference schedule
    • Have a non-student coach for the team
  3. Submit your application to Club Sports on our Maize Page. In August, we will notify teams through Maize Pages about the status of their application.

Club Sports Council

The mission of the Club Sports Council is to provide avenues for Clubs to learn from each other, to act as a liaison between the Clubs and the Club Sports Program staff, and to promote the Club Sports program throughout the University.

The Club Sports Council is made up of one representative from each of the 31 Club Sports teams; the representative must be a member of that Club in good standing and who has knowledge of the administrative and operational work done by the Club.

In addition, there are five (5) Executive Board members who are elected to a one year term (May-April) by a system of one vote per Club Sport, who must have served as a member of the Club Sports council before standing for office.

Each Club selects their Club Sports Council representative independently; E-Board interest is solicited during the Winter semester each year and additional eligibility/requirements must be met before standing for office.

Current E-Board Members:

Ryan Kennedy, President
Elena Ramos, Vice President
Tyler Davidson, Financial Chair
Emily Dahuron, Public Relations Chair
Meagan Malm, Secretary
