About Club Sports

The Penn State Club Sports Program oversees student organizations whose primary mission is to further sport and physical activity on campus. These organizations are student-run and give students the opportunity to develop leadership skills in budget, organization, and time management. All club sport organizations compete under the purview of a national governing body with an emphasis on intercollegiate competition and incorporate the learning of sport-specific skills through instruction. Club sport organizations may select members through a tryout process.

Eligibility

  • Intercollegiate athletes are not eligible to participate in Club Sports. Please contact the senior assistant director of Competitive Sports with any specific questions.
  • Students enrolled at the World Campus are not considered University Park students unless they are also enrolled in at least one credit hour at the University Park campus.
