Saint Louis University Club Sports

Club sports are another opportunity for you to participate in fun, competitive sports at SLU. Our clubs compete against other colleges and universities across the nation.

Clubs offer opportunities for people at all levels of athletic experience to develop valuable leadership skills. The level of competition varies between each club. Some clubs are intramural, which means they compete against other SLU students, others compete at the varsity level and travel across the country to national tournaments.

Club sports operate under the direction of SLU’s Department of Campus Recreation. Each club must register with the Student Government Association and the Department of Campus Recreation. For more information about club sports — including how to form a new club — view the Club Sports Manual below or contact us at campusrec@slu.edu
