What is a Sport Club?
A Sport Club is formed by a group of FGCU students motivated by a common interest and desire to participate in a specific sport activity. Sport Clubs combine the team elements of varsity athletics, and the recreational atmosphere of intramural sports. Some clubs are highly competitive, while other clubs are more instructional. The nature of the Sport Club is primarily dependent on the student officers that run it.
Who is in charge?
Sport Clubs are unique because all of the organizational duties are performed by the student officers which consist of a President, Vice President, Treasurer and sometimes more positions. The teams prepare their own budgets, schedule their own practices, and hire their own coaches.
Why should I join?
In addition to being part of a team, Sport Clubs offer opportunities for students to learn essentials in organization, management, budget planning, leadership, as well as other "real world" skills when they take on an officer position.
Can't find your sport?
If you cannot find the sport that interests you, consider starting a new sport club, or check to see if they are a RSO. All Sport Clubs begin as Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), so be sure to check out the clubs on the EagleLink website, as well as the "how to guide" on the Sport Club resources page.
