Create a Club

Do you feel as though your sport of interest is under represented through Club Sports? Why not make your own?

“Club sports are beneficial in that they allow students to learn or continue playing a sport while competing against other schools without the time commitment of full athletic programs,” said David McConnell, Club Sports Graduate Assistant.rugby2

There is a two part process to creating a Club Sport. First you must becoming a recognized student organization and then you can apply to be in the Club Sports program.

Becoming a Student Organization

The start of your clubs beginning is simple. All you need is four chartering members that are currently enrolled as GSU students with a minimum of 2.0 GPA.

Once you have that, grab an Advisor who is a full-time faculty/staff member at GSU and draft a constitution.

Send two of your chartering members, one of whom must be the President, to the New Student Organization Workshop. Once that is done submit an official, new organization registration form with the Constitution to MyInvolvement.

Now you are an official Student Organization!

Becoming a Club Sport

Once you have become recognized as a Student Organization your teammates and yourself then write a formal proposal to the Club Sports Program by March.

“The Club Sports staff will then review the proposal and discuss the viability of the sport in our program,” said McConnell.

Typically it takes a full year to get fully recognized and receive funding.

After the application is reviewed, the Club Sports staff works with prospective clubs on budgets, practice times and spaces, and other administrative stuff, said McConnell.

“A dedicated and passionate lead team is required to become a successful club sport, as there are multiple steps that need to be taken to become recognized by our staff, and then to keep the club successful after becoming a part of our program,” said McConnell.

Southern Cheer is in their first year as a fully chartered club and Club Dodgeball is currently practicing and petitioning to become a club.

Find Your Niche with Club Sports

Last week was the Club Sports Fair! Over 26 clubs gathered together to promote their club and to gain new members.

“We had a better turnout than we’ve had in a couple of years,” said David McConnell, Club Sports Graduate Assistant.

Men’s and Women’s Rugby, Archery, and Southern Anglers all did well in recruiting new members during the fair.

Now, most people are under the impression that club sports are for the elite. Club Sports are not only for the elite, many Club Sports are open to anyone with an interest in the sport.

Unlike intramural sports, Club Sports are usually for both fall and spring semesters. This elongated playing time allows players more time with their team and sport. Participating in a club may offer the opportunity to travel frequently around the Southeast to compete against other colleges and universities!

There is something for everyone in Club Sports!
We currently offer:

Climbing
Fencing
Dodgeball
Aikido
Cycling
Southern Explosion (Dance)

And if you missed out on the fair, no worries! There is still the opportunity to join the club of your choice.
