A sport club is a student organization established to promote a shared interest and offer an opportunity for competition, instruction, special interest and/or participation in recreational sports activities. Many of them are affiliated with national organizations. Often these groups compete against peer organizations from other institutions in local, regional and even national events. Participation is strictly voluntary and is meant to be a learning experience for all involved.
All undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at Austin Peay State University are eligible for membership in a club sport. In addition, current faculty and staff of APSU are eligible to join a sport club. Each individual sport club is responsible for determining its membership requirements and policies.
Like all official campus organizations, sport clubs are expected to comply with the policy and procedural guidelines adopted by the Office of Student Life and Leadership, Office of Student Affairs and the University administration.
