Club Sports

WVU Sports Club Federation

Mission Statement: The club sports program at West Virginia University provides an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other members of the university community to shape their own recreational experience through competitive and instructional organized sports. Club sports can enhance the collegiate experience by allowing those who participate to develop skills and knowledge of a particular sport, build character, display sportsmanship, foster diversity, and develop leadership skills for future pursuits and a lifetime appreciation for physical activity.

Check out some recent headlines about some of our most successful clubs.


There are currently over 50 club sports administered by the West Virginia University Campus Recreation Department including men and women's basketball, competitive cheer, dodgeball, quidditch and weight lifting. Each semester, Campus Recreation hosts a Club Sports Fair to exhibit the wide variety of clubs available to the university community. Take a look at a full list of our club sports here or a full list of WVU student organizations here.

Each club is comprised of enthusiastic, hardworking, and dedicated student-athletes who organize, fund and promote their clubs with the ultimate goal of competing with colleges and universities on both a regional and national level. Club sports at WVU are also involved in a variety of community service projects throughout the year.

Each club is formed, developed, governed, and administered by student members of that particular club in conjunction with the Club Sports Manager. Each club also has an advisor, which can be a faculty/staff member or a member of the community, to provide guidance. The key to success of this program is student leadership, interest, involvement, and participation.
