A Sport Club is a registered student organization assisted by the Campus Recreation Department, formed by individuals motivated by a common interest and desire to participate in a specific sport activity. The club exists to promote and develop skills, engage in competition, encourage peer leadership, and enjoy the recreational and social fellowship of a specific sport. Generally, clubs are open to all individuals interested in a sport from novice to extremely skilled.
Each club decides how much they charge for dues depending on the funding needs of the clubs. Some clubs do not charge at all while some are over $1,000 a year.
Some clubs require that all students must participate in all competitions and others will allow you to participate solely in practice. For more information please contact the club officers.
Most of our clubs compete against other colleges in Texas, including Texas A&M, UT, UT-Arlington, UT-San Antonio, Rice, and SMU. Each club belongs to some sort of regional or national organization that helps to dictate which teams Texas State competes against each year. Some clubs do participate in non-collegiate events as well.
Each club's practices vary. Some clubs practice only once a week while others practice up to four times a week.
Any student who is enrolled in at least 6 hours at Texas State University may join a sport club. Community members are also welcome, but must not make up more than 20% of the membership. Insurance is also required and a Risk Release form must be filled out by all members.
Just contact that president from the team you are interested in and they can give you more information. Or, stop by the Sport Clubs Office located in the Student Recreation Center anytime between the hours of 10am-5pm Monday through Thursday or 10am-3pm on Friday and ask a Sport Clubs Supervisor for more information.
