What are Sport Clubs?

Sport Clubs are a great way to get involved at JMU – and there are over 50 clubs to choose from! Sport Clubs are led by students and often compete with sport clubs from other universities. Clubs often have dedicated practice times, seasons, and dues. Join the over 2,000 JMU students who participate in Sport Clubs annually for a unique campus experience emphasizing recreation, competition and leadership!

How do I join?

Each club has different procedures for becoming a member of the club. Some have tryouts, whereas others have open practices throughout the year. Therefore, the best way to get involved with the club(s) you are interested in is to contact the club directly to get more information on when their club practices and meets. All club contact information can be found in the Sport Club Directory.

Not sure which club to join? Another way to get involved is by visiting the different club booths that are set up during Student Organization Night, which takes place at the beginning of each semester.

How do I create a Sport Club?
