Engagement Through Participation
Through the administration of club functions, the sports club program provides many opportunities for students to gain valuable experience in leadership development, collaboration skills, organizational skills, improved physical skill development and addition of lifetime sport skills. The club program also provides a very positive venue for students to become engaged with the university, promoting the development of a strong sense of community and ownership with the university.
Sports clubs at the University of Louisville are governed by the Sport Club Federation, made up of one representative from each organization. The Federation is currently comprised of 20 clubs. New clubs are constantly being formed. If you have an interest in helping to form a club not listed here, contact David Rice, Sport Club Coordinator at 852-6707.
