What is Club Sports?

A Club Sport is defined as a registered student organization that exists to promote and develop interest in a particular sport or physical activity. The Club Sports Program provides a wide range of instructional, recreational, and competitive athletic opportunities, with an emphasis on student leadership, organization, and team management. The 45+ Club Sports organizations offer a chance to be part of a team, run an organization, and represent University of Cincinnati while competing against and traveling to other universities.  Many of our clubs compete at an elite level and contest for National Championships in their sport.
