  • 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 at Texas State University and pays the Rec Fee may join a sport club.  However, all club members must follow hour requirements set forth by their respective leagues in order to compete.  Also, all students must have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to compete and travel with a club.  Medical Insurance is strongly recommended and a Risk Release form must be filled out by all members.
