Sport Clubs are registered student organizations that exists to promote and develop interest in a particular sport or physical activity. A club's focus may be recreational, instructional, competitive, or a combination of these types of activities. With approximately 500 students actively participating, our clubs are not only a great way to stay active, but also a fantastic way to network, learn a new sport, and gain leadership experience. Our Sport Clubs bring a new sense of energy and school spirit to campus that help aid in both the recruitment and retention of our NIU students.
