COVID-19 Sport Clubs Update

At UREC, we know that Sport Clubs are very important to the college experience and we are working hard to be able to create a plan to allow for club activities that can be done safely. Below you will find a link to the Sport Clubs Phased Return to Play Guidelines detailing the approach of returning to play this Fall semester.

All Clubs will begin the semester in the Red Phase with no practices or travel allowed. 

At this time, our goal is to move out of the Red Phase about two to three weeks into the semester. It is important to understand that at any point we could be required to move back a phase if the environment dictates that. It is also important to understand that some sports may be allowed to move into a different phase based solely on their type of activity. This is not a one size fits all scenario. Please read the guidelines below and contact the Clubs directly for more information about their plans.

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.

What is the commitment level?

The commitment level varies depending on the club and their level of competition. Many clubs compete on the state, regional and national level, while others rarely compete. For more information please contact the club directly. All club contact information can be found in the Sport Club Directory.

How do I create a Sport Club?

UREC encourages all students interested in starting a club to pursue the club recognition process outlined on the Start a Club page. UREC will only take a maximum of three new Sport Clubs per year and applications are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.
