General Overview

​The Club Sports program is intended to provide a team structure within a recreational environment for current USF students.  This program is designed to provide social opportunities as well as the development of specific athletic skills.

The University of San Francisco supports club sports ranging from recreational to highly competitive.  Participants are required to pay dues in order to participate.

Although we are not in person, all of our Clubs will operate in a virtual platform with a mix of online practices, conditioning workouts and individual skill instruction and development. Throughout the semester all of the Clubs will incorporate other engagement opportunities with a heavy focus on building relationships and maintaining their strong communities.

Getting Involved

We encourage all participants to attend Day on the Green and/or the individual online webinars to find out more information about the Clubs. For the majority of Clubs, all levels of experience are welcome! To contact any of the Club Officers and/or Head Coach please email the Recreational Sports Manager at jyjavier@usfca.edu.

Participation Dues

Dues are the cost to participate in Club Sports at USF. There will be Fall & Spring fees respectively. The Fall fee will act as a “credit” towards the Spring semester fee. The Recreational Sports Department supports an open enrollment policy throughout the academic year. Please review instructions on how to access your ActiveNet account to pay participation dues.

Refund Policies

All refund requests must be emailed to KHRC@usfca.edu. Requests will be reviewed and, if granted, will be given as credit to your ActiveNet account.  The credit can be used for any other Koret services.

Starting a NEW Club Sport

In order for a club sport to become officially recognized through the Koret Rec Sports Department, they must undergo a two-part process. First, they must seek recognition as a student organization through Student Leadership and Engagement and maintain good standing for a year. During that year, the organization will be connected with Koret staff in order to determine their needs, a risk assessment will take place, etc. At the end of the year, the organization will go through a review process to determine if it will be possible to grant them recognition as a club sport through Koret.

To be considered for recognition as a club sport, please complete the new student organization registration process for undergraduate students outlined on SLE's webpage. When completing the registration form, select "Club Sport Interest" as the organization's category.

Once you finish the registration items, the SLE staff will be in contact with you regarding next steps. If you have any questions, please email sle@usfca.edu.  


USF Student Testimonials

“If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants, I would say to follow your heart and your past/current passions.  Even if you aren't "good" at a certain sport, me and all the other club officers highly encourage you to come out and try our clubs.  At the end of the day, there is something here for you to participate in that'll be fun and allow a stress-free environment for you to get away from the stress of college.” - Aidan Patterson [USF Junior]

“Club Sports means a social life, exercise [and] fun! If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say talk to everyone you can.  Everyone is friendly and you might find one that can help you in your major.” - Alex Bradshaw [USF Junior]

“If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say don't be shy, join!” - Blake Dailor [USF Senior]

“Club Sports means growth both physically, mentally, and socially.  As a freshman first joining club volleyball, I was quiet and overly passive.  With each year, I not only became better at the sport I always loved, but I vocalized my opinions more, I became more confident, and I made the most amazing and supportive group of friends. It has taught me to be more independent and how to live my best life.  If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say enjoy every game and tournament, because the season goes by so fast. The days may seem long at times, but that's when the best memories are made.” - Ciarra Nean-Marzella [USF Senior]

“Club Sports means being accepted into [a] little family!  If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say it’s going to be the best decision you could make as a freshman to join club sports.” - Jenna Solheid [USF Junior]

“Club Sports is a place where no matter what skill level you are, you are always welcomed.  It is a friendly environment where advanced players teach beginners how to play.” - Justin Wong [USF Sophomore]

“Club Sports means meeting new people and playing a sport we all have in common. If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say make sure you do your homework early so you can finish the day off with a fun practice!” - Kat Ho [USF Junior]

“Club Sports means a family away home, still being able to play a sport I love, making friendships that will last forever, being on a team again and a place where I don’t have to worry about school or work.  If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say…DO IT!! You won’t regret it and it’ll be your best year or years here at USF!” - Kennedi Stewart [USF Senior]

“Club sports is more than just being physically active, which is amazing. But it is also a huge foundation for the community I have acquired in college.” - Meiling Westberg [USF Senior]

“Club Sports means a means of connection and exploration of different cultures with people that also enjoy the same cultures!” - Paul Williamson [USF Sophomore]

“Club sports means being able to do something that I love with my friends and work hard to show the usf community our art while having fun at the same time! If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say….Go for it! Being nervous to join a club is normal and you won’t know if its the right choice for you until you try it out:)” - Sammy Bruce [USF Junior]

“Club Sports means a community to lean on.  If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say cub teams at USF are much more than just an outlet for playing a certain sport.  It's also one of many support systems at USF that students can rely on.  Unlike the collegiate level, we are not incentivized purely by competition.  Club players are there because they enjoy ALL aspects of organized sports, including the feelings of community and camaraderie that [is] a great space to make close friends.” - Sevag Halajian [USF Junior]

“To me, Club Sports means challenging yourself with fellow teammates and showing others how to have fun in a competitive sport.  If I could give advice to future Club Sports participants I would say have fun and be prepared to make some new life long friends!” - Sky Berry-Weiss [USF Junior]
