Club Sports were established in the Fall 2011 to promote and develop the interests and skills of their members in a particular sport.
Clubs may be instructional, recreational, and/or competitive. Currently, there are three Club Sports offered at UF: men's lacrosse, women's rugby, and co-ed stock horse team.
All clubs are administered by the Recreational Services Department, however, all clubs are organized by student officers and a faculty/staff advisor. Any club member has the opportunity to become involved in the leadership and decision-making process for their club. Club sports are open to all UF students whether they are at a beginner skill level or an advanced level competitor.
