NMU Club Sports
The NMU Club Sport Program is the administrative body for all club sport teams that have been approved by NMU Recreational Sports. The Club Sport Program was created to bridge the gap that often exists between intramural sports and intercollegiate athletics. Each club is formed, developed, governed and led by the student membership of that club working in unison with the Rec Sports department staff. The key to the success of any club and the program overall is the interest, active involvement and dedicated leadership of the students who participate. Club Sports are guided by the rules and regulations governing all NMU students, as well as the guidelines established by the Recreational Sports department. All club sports participants must also follow the guidelines of the Club Sport Program Handbook.
Membership costs vary from team to team, as do the time and length of each club’s season. Some travel is required of team members, as club sports play teams at other universities. Most of the squads are open to all interested NMU students, although some of the teams have minimum skills requirements that must be met to participate and/or tryouts.
The availability of club sport team offerings changes each year based on student interest.
