Join the Club
GVSU Club Sports provides a team environment for students who are looking for a more competitive and intense experience than intramural sports. Our over 40+ clubs offer opportunities in women’s, men’s, and coed sports teams. Club Sports teams are run by students, for students, with the help of GV administrative staff and club-appointed coaches.
Each team competes under a national governing body and adheres to its regulations, policies, and rules of play. Team schedules, dues, and travel requirements differ from sport to sport, but typically include practice 2-3 per week and 5-6 competitions per semester. While many teams do hold tryouts, there are multiple teams who welcome new members (even with limited to no experience) year-round. Check out each club’s individual webpage for details on membership and participation.
Getting involved with club sports is the best way to continue playing the sport you love and building a community here at GVSU. Being a club sport athlete provides opportunities to meet new people, find a support system, and get involved in positions that develop career skills and resume builders. Come join one of the best programs in the nation at GVSU Club Sports!! Anchor Up!

"Participating in club sports at GVSU has been extremely beneficial and has led to unforgettable friendships. I have grown not only as a leader but also as a person.
