Club Sports

Club Sports are a great way to be active on campus. There is no experience required to join a club and all students are welcome. The Club Sports Program at Texas A&M University-Kingsville offers the opportunity for students to compete as non-varsity athletes in various forms of intercollegiate competition while assisting in the development of well-rounded student leaders. All Club Sports are registered student organizations through the Office of Student Engagement. Students are directly responsible for all aspects of operating and managing a successful competitive sports organization.

Active Clubs

  1. Schedule an appointment with the Competitive Sports Coordinator at the Recreational Sports Department to discuss the process to becoming a Club Sport, and the differences between a Club Sport and Registered Student Organization.
  2. Select an Advisor. Each organization must have an advisor who is a member of the faculty or staff at TAMUK. Graduate students and teaching students are not eligible to be advisors.
  3. Create a Statement of Purpose which states what your organization wishes to accomplish.
  4. Create an Information Sheet which is a form outlining your organization’s leadership.
