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. Don't see a club you are interested in?
