Club sports are formed and lead by students and provide the opportunity to engage in intercollegiate competition with representative teams from other clubs, colleges, and universities or to just enjoy structured sports activities with like-minded individuals.
Club sports present a unique learning opportunity for those students who choose to form, lead, and expand their clubs. Students elect their own officers, draft their own constitutions, determine practice days and times, schedule facility space, set up playing schedules with other teams, and locate and pay officials for home contests. Officers in club sports truly learn what the term "student development" means.
Membership in club sports is open to currently enrolled undergraduate students carrying a minimum of nine credits or graduate/non-traditional students with six credits. Every club needs at least ten active student members in good standing.
Listed below are BGSU's active Club Sports teams, contact information for a representative of each club, and links to active organization web sites. Direct additional questions and inquiries to the Club Sports Office: 419.372.2464.

Existing clubs or student organizations may not be duplicated. Other factors in considering new requests involve risk management and liability issues, availability of facilities, funding, regional competition and a club's potential overall contribution to the University community.
Teams can select volunteer coaches for their club based on the individual’s knowledge and experience in the desired sport. Coaches need not be affiliated with BGSU but must be approved by Recreation and Wellness.
Team Registration occurs each fall with the completion of the Club Sports Updates Form being submitted by an officer of each club to the Club Sports Office. The information submitted reflects the club's goals and objectives and provides the Club Sports staff details to share with prospective members upon receiving inquiries. A completed Club Sports Updates Form can be submitted via an email attachment or in person to the Club Sports Office located at 130 Perry Field House.
