WHO CAN JOIN?
Club sports are organized by students; however, membership is open to the public as well. IU faculty, staff and the Bloomington community are welcome to join or coach a club as long as IU students comprise the majority of the club’s membership. IU faculty and staff may also serve as advisors to a club.
Club Sports are open to all participants, regardless of skill, ability or experience.
WHAT IS A CLUB SPORT?
Club Sports allow students to get together regularly to learn a new sport or activity, or continue playing a sport they love. They can be competitive, recreational, and/or instructional and are student-run organizations. Some Club Sports compete against other universities and are members of conferences or leagues, while others are focused on skill development and progression, and are considered a lifelong activity. Club Sports are different from Intramural Sports. Intramural Sports provide students an opportunity to participate in a variety of sports with or against other students from Indiana University.
