With 27 club sports and just over 400 members, Club Sports at Oakland University is one of the largest student organization groups on campus. Operated out of the Campus Recreation Department, we have clubs that can fulfill the interests of almost anyone.

If you are looking for a sport that is hyper-competitive and competes at the highest of levels, we have that for you. If you are interested in simply learning a new sport or a new skill without having to compete, we also have that for you. The best way to find out is to send an email to the club sport representative listed underneath each club sport name above.

The best part of Club Sports at Oakland University is that each sport is completely student ran. This allows students to gain valuable leadership and organization management skills that will stay with them long after graduation. 

What if you're an alumni or community member that regularly visits Oakland University? Can you join a club sport? You certainly can! You just might not be able to compete as clubs are required to sustain a 80% student majority at competitions. 

Want more information about club sports? Find them on Grizzorgs, IMLeagues, or even social media sites. If you're looking to read up on some of the clubs, check out the OU Campus Recreation's blog, we have a dedicated section for club sports.
