Club Sports

Club Sports offer an exciting athletic alternative that bridges the gap between intramural play and varsity sports. There are currently over 50 club sports organizations at GVSU that range from recreational to highly competitive.

These programs are funded primarily by participant dues. Your contribution to a club sport of your choice will make a difference in students' ability to compete at the highest levels by offsetting out-of-pocket costs to participate.  

100% of your donation will go directly to the club sport of your choice. If you’re interested in giving to specific club sport program, search for the program of your choice on the Find Funds page.
