    Sport Clubs at the University of Mississippi are designed to serve students, faculty and staff members in different sports and recreational activities. These interests can be competitive, recreational or instructional in nature as clubs may represent the university in intercollegiate competition or conduct intra-club activities such as practice, instruction, social and tournament play. Sport Clubs at the university are organized by volunteers and further common interests in an activity through participation and competition. Sport Club participation is strictly voluntary. The clubs are meant to be a learning experience for the members through their involvement in fundraising, public relations, organization, administration, budgeting and scheduling, as well as the development of skills in their particular sport. While sport club participation is open to students, faculty and staff of the university, the primary philosophy of the Sport Clubs program is “student-led, student-run.” This relates to the overall mission of the University of Mississippi and focuses on the role that the Department of Campus Recreation and Ole Miss Sport Clubs program plays in students’ lives while attending Ole Miss.

    Benefits of Being a Registered Sport Club

    • Financial Assistance: Sport Clubs that meet the necessary requirements will have the opportunity to receive allocations and funding from the Department of Campus Recreation.
    • Facility Space**: Possible facility space for practice/competition/events is available at no cost with high priority over other student organizations or outside groups. Campus Recreation will explore other outlets for facility space if they cannot meet the need of the Sport Club. All home events will be staffed by Campus Recreation free of charge to the Sport Club with the exception of sport specific officials or certified trainers.
    • Assistance with purchase and storage of equipment and uniforms.
    • Assistance with risk management, event planning and fiscal management.
    • Marketing & promotion of club through Campus Recreation: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,, Campus Recreation website, and use of its facilities to display information. Potential Sport Club participants that contact Campus Recreation staff will be directed to the recognized Sport Clubs.
    • Access to potential local, state, regional, and national competition opportunities.
    • Continued use of “Ole Miss” name and logos as a recognized student organization.
    • Potential for personal development and networking opportunities through leadership workshops: Sport Club staff at the Department of Campus Recreation will provide club officers with additional training and development workshops to continue growth of the Sport Club and its student leaders.

    A “Sport Club” is defined as any organization that fits within the category of “recreational”, “instructional”, or “competitive”. If a Sport Club that should report to Campus Recreation is not meeting minimum requirements, student organization status may be revoked. If revoked, this will result in the loss of all the rights and privileges of a student organization. Campus Recreation’s minimum requirements are listed below.

    **Any student organization interested in reserving space for a sport activity on a consistent basis will be considered in one of the three Sport Club categories. If the activity the organization is interested in participating in is already a registered Sport Club, the facility space request will not be completed and the organization will be directed to contact the current club to join.
