Student leaders, known as Club Sport Officers, club athletes and teams collaborate with the Club Sports program staff.

  • Club Sport teams welcome veteran athletes and newcomers alike. Student fees fund this program; therefore, all students are welcome to participate.

  • Yes, you are welcome to join us. However, some National Governing Bodies may count your varsity athletic experience against how many eligible seasons you have left to participate in sanctioned competitions. Please contact the club you are interested in joining directly for more information.
  • ImPACT is a computer generated concussion screening system we use to keep you safe and healthy while you play your sport. This tool measures your brain’s reaction time and memory to obtain a benchmark score for you. If you sustain a head injury while playing your sport, you will retake the ImPACT test. These two scores are analyzed to help our sports medicine staff determine when your brain is healed so you can get back on the playing field as soon as safely possible.
    • In order to be eligible for this program, you must pay the Recreation Fee ($97). If you are taking classes on campus, you have already paid this fee. If you only taking online classes, you can opt-in and pay this fee so that you may become eligible to participate. This is required as student fees fund our program.

    • Each Club Sport team determines how much they must charge in dues. These dues (paid either on a semester-by-semester basis or once per year) pay for travel costs, uniforms, equipment, facility rentals, etc. Reach out to the club you would like to join for specific information about how much their team dues will be for the current or upcoming semester. Please note team dues may fluctuate from year to year based on changes in the teams’ budget and yearly needs.
  • Yes! Please be sure to complete the appropriate Player Emergency Card for each team you wish to join. You only need to complete the ImPACT test once.

Intramural participants will primarily compete against fellow KSU students on opposing Intramural teams. Some select teams may compete at extramural competitions that may take place off-campus. There is no additional cost to play an Intramural Sport (unless the team forfeits a competition – then the team captain will be charged the forfeit fee).

    • Club Sport teams typically practice and compete over the entire academic year. Club teams practice during the week and compete on the weekends or during some weekday evenings. Club teams compete against other universities and local organizations. Club teams regularly travel to compete locally, regionally, and nationally. There are additional fees to join a club team (fees differ between club teams).
  • We are happy to help you start a new club team! The first step is to contact one of our Club Sport administrators. We will explain the process for how to get started, give you some ideas for how to recruit members, and help you get your team up and running.

  • Each Club Sport team is operated by a group of student leaders called “Club Sport Officers.” Officers manage the ongoing operations of the club, including recruitment efforts, competition scheduling, financial and travel planning (among other tasks). Being a Club Sport Officer is a great way to build your resume and gain leadership experience while you are a student. Without our dedicated officers, none of this would be possible!
  • Club Sport Officers are elected by their teammates. If you want to become an officer, let your team’s current officers know.
  • Yes! Volunteering with Club Sports is a great opportunity to gain experience and build your resume while still being part of the team.
