Find your sport, find your people.
Sport Clubs are organizations individuals formed who are motivated by common interests and desire to compete in sports. Sport Clubs provide learning experience for members through their involvement in teamwork, fundraising, public relations, organization administration, budgeting, and scheduling, as well as the development of skills in their particular sport. Sport Clubs are formed so members in each club can learn new skills, improve existing skills, engage in competition, and enjoy recreational and social fellowship.
LSU Sport Clubs compete against other schools across the region and nation. UREC encourages you to reach out to any club and find out how to get involved through practice, tryouts, and interest meetings

The LSU Sport Club program has provided me many valuable things during my time at LSU. It has given me invaluable leadership skills, friends, and experiences. My time with the Club Baseball team will be most of my favorite memories when I look back on the time spent at LSU.
