The mission of APSU Sport Clubs is to promote intercollegiate competition through student organizations as an alternative to varsity sports for the APSU student body, emphasizing strong student leadership and involvement.
What are Sport Clubs?
As defined in the NIRSA (National Intramural Recreational Sports Association) Club Sports Handbook a sport club is "a group of students voluntarily organized for the purpose of furthering their common interests in an activity through participation and competition." Here is a current list of club offerings and contact information:
|Bass Fishing||Jordan Brandtfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Men's Soccer||Emmanuel Williamsemail@example.com|
|Women's Volleyball||Shania Hamptonfirstname.lastname@example.org|
|Wrestling/Martial Arts||Tristan Gloveremail@example.com|
Membership in registered student organizations must be open to all students without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, citizenship or handicap.
Joining a Club
Those interested in joining a sport club must be registered on PeayLink. Once registration has been completed, they simply search for "Sport Clubs" and choose the club they are interested in and click "Join Organization." This will send a request to the primary contact of the organization.
Starting a Sport Club
Step 1: Student(s) meet with the Coordinator of Intramural Sports and Sport Clubs to disclose their intent to form an organization. In this meeting, consultation will be provided in regards to responsibilities of student organizations and the application process is described.
Step 2: Interested students complete the New Student Organization Recognition packet. Completed packets must be submitted for review before sending to Student Life and Engagement.
Step 3: Once the packet has been approved, the SOC Vice President will notify the President via email to schedule a PeayLink training session.
Step 4: Following PeayLink training, the President will complete the online registration process.
Step 5: Upon approval from Student Life and Engagement, the President will meet with the Coordinator of Intramural Sports and Sport Clubs to discuss the next steps for the club.
