The Club Sports program at the University of Kentucky provides opportunities for students‚ faculty‚ and staff who desire a more in–depth sports experience than is provided in the Intramural and/or open recreation program. The focus of the Club Sports program blends the aspects of learning new skills‚ practicing with club members‚ and possibly competing with other clubs. It also provides a great opportunity to meet new people and become more involved with campus life at the University of Kentucky. Don’t be just another student number. Broaden your college experience and join a Club Sport!
Qualified students who may need accommodation to participate in club sports should contact the Disability Resource Center. For more information, visit the Disability Resource Center webpage.
How to Join
Club sports are organized and operated by students. Every club has different guidelines for recruiting and registering new members. To find out how you can join one of these clubs just pick up a Club Sport Contact list in the Campus Recreation office or go to our current clubs page.
All club members must be one of the following: UK students, faculty, or staff.
Creation of New Club Sport
General information about creating a student organization and the requirements can be found here: http://getinvolved.uky.edu/so/registerorg
Club Sports are a specialized type of Student Organization. These organizations register through the Club Sports office rather than the Office of Student Organizations and Activities.
1. Join Orgsync. Instructions can be found here: http://getinvolved.uky.edu/node/88
2. At this website: https://orgsync.com/browse_orgs/662 find and select the green button on the right labeled "Register New Organization".
3. Select "Club Sports" in the popup box menu.
4. Complete the registration form.
5. In addition to the steps above, prospective club sports will need the Club Sports Director’s approval as their University Advisor. To gain said approval, the prospective club will need to present to the Club Sports Director plans for the long term viability and growth of the club, the planned source of income for the club, the facilities the club intends to use, what league (if any) the club plans to affiliate with, who would be doing the instruction, a copy of the instructors credentials (if any), and a plan for risk management.
The Club Sports Manual found here https://orgsync.com/141384/files/1052727/ can assist in answering questions and has detailed resources to aid in the creation of a Risk Management Plan.
Our office is also happy to address assist. Call (859) 257-1957 or (859) 257-6863.
