What is a Sport Club?

Sport clubs are groups of students and faculty/staff that have interests in a specific sport. Sport Clubs provide competition at specialized levels, participation in tournaments and opportunities to practice a sport with people who have the same interests.

The Sport Clubs program at Iowa State University has a long and proud tradition. Our student-led clubs offer a way for Iowa State students to engage in activities that they enjoy while competing locally, regionally and nationally. Sport clubs are open to all Iowa State students and a great way to try something new!

What can a Sport Club do for me?

Iowa State University’s Sport Club Program is designed to serve individual interests in the different sport club activities and is student-oriented in every respect. The Sport Club Program is created for the students and by the students, under the supervision of the sport club coordinator and the Sport Club Council.

SPORT CLUB COUNCIL (SCC)

The Sport Clubs program at Iowa State University is designed to serve individual interests in different Sport Club activities. Each club elects one person to serve as a representative to the Sport Club Council. The council meets approximately 5 times per semester and deals primarily with budget decisions, Sport Club promotion, discipline, administrative policies, and scheduling home events.

BUDGETS

The SCC goes through it’s annual budgeting cycle each year in February. Each Sport Club is required to be represented throughout the entire budget hearing meeting in order to receive funding each year. The date and location of this meeting will be determined later in the Fall semester.

HOSTING EVENTS

If you are hosting a home event, game, match, tournament, etc., the first step is to email the Senior Coordinator to check availability and reserve the facility space (gym, indoor space, outdoor field, etc.) After that has been confirmed, then enter the activity into the Event Authorization System linked here.
At that point the Event Authorization Committee will assess the activity and follow-up with your club as needed. Once approved, the Student Organization Safety Coordinator in Risk Management will email you waivers for all outside participants to sign on the day of the event. Those are then returned back to Risk Management afterwards located in 3618 of the Administrative Services Building, north of central campus near Frederiksen Court.
