The University of West Georgia Club Sports program offers the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of athletic events while gaining friendships and developing valuable leadership skills. Each individual club is student-run and establishes an organizational framework, leadership team and schedule to meet the members' needs and expectations.
The University of West Georgia's Club Sports program, administered by University Recreation (UREC), is dedicated to the mission of providing and developing leadership opportunities for students who are interested in a sport or activity. In accordance with the Department missions, Club Sports are committed to improving the quality of life for students, faculty, staff, as well as encouraging healthy lifestyle choices.For additional information, please refer to our UREC Club Sport Handbook.

Starting A New Club
Any group of students with a collective interest in a sport or activity has the ability to start a new Club Sport. The process for doing so is outlined in the steps below. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns with the process, please feel free to contact the Club Sports Office for assistance.
ALL CLUB TEAMS MUST BE A REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATION WITH THE CENTER FOR STUDENT INVOLVEMENT (CSI). Please refer to the Registered Student Organization Handbook for details. Upon completing the Student Organization Registration process you must also come by the UREC Programs Office (Campus Center Rm. 305) for a Club Sports Application Packet.
Packet will include the following paperwork that must be reviewed, completed, and/or filed:
a. Club Sports Policies and Procedures Manual
b. Club Sports Registration Form
c. Roster form
Thoroughly review the UREC Club Sports Handbook to gather all relevant information about starting a Club Sports team
Ensure that you have students in place that are willing to serve as “Officers” for the Club Sport. Officers are the main leadership team for your organization. You will need a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Safety Officer.
a. In an effort to expand leadership opportunities, each of the 4 officer positions must be held by 4 different club members. All officers must be students attending/enrolled at the University of West Georgia.
Develop a Constitution and Bylaws (per the CSI requirement) using the instructions provided in the Application Packet, and submit a copy to the Associate Director of Programs.
Once all documentation has been submitted and officers elected, each officer is required to have an Officer Training session before final admittance into the Club Sports program.
Recruit interested athletes by advertising, holding information meetings around campus, and attending recruitment fairs host by University Recreation.
