Club Sports at KSU are designed "for the students; by the students." Teams compete at home and away against other universities from around the country. Assisted by the staff of the Department of Sports and Recreation, students are challenged to build their leadership, communication, decision making, organizational, problem solving, and team building skills. The actual success and strength of each club is dependent on effective leadership of the officers and the degree of involvement of its club members.
Are you ready to take your passion for sports and recreation to the next level at Kennesaw State University? Joining a Club Sport is your gateway to an exciting world of team camaraderie, competition, and personal growth.

All currently registered Club Sport athletes have access to the services of Luke Lammert, our Certified Athletic Trainer.
Certified Athletic trainers (ATCs) are highly qualified, multi-skilled health care professionals who render service or treatment, under the direction of or in collaboration with a physician, in accordance with their education, training and the state's statutes, rules and regulations. As a part of the health care team, services provided by athletic trainers include primary care, injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.
As the service is covered by student fees, there is no extra cost for the provided treatments.

How much does it cost to play Club Sports?
In order to be eligible for this program, you must pay the Recreation Fee ($97). If you are taking classes on campus, you have already paid this fee. If you only taking online classes, you can opt-in and pay this fee so that you may become eligible to participate. This is required as student fees fund our program.
Each Club Sport team determines how much they must charge in dues. These dues (paid either on a semester-by-semester basis or once per year) pay for travel costs, uniforms, equipment, facility rentals, etc. Reach out to the club you would like to join for specific information about how much their team dues will be for the current or upcoming semester. Please note team dues may fluctuate from year to year based on changes in the teams’ budget and yearly needs.
Can I join more than one Club Sports team?
What is the difference between Intramural Sports and Club Sports?
Intramural Sports take place during two six-week phases each semester. The sports offered may change from phase-to-phase. Intramural participants will primarily compete against fellow KSU students on opposing Intramural teams. Some select teams may compete at extramural competitions that may take place off-campus. There is no additional cost to play an Intramural Sport (unless the team forfeits a competition – then the team captain will be charged the forfeit fee).
Club Sport teams typically practice and compete over the entire academic year. Club teams practice during the week and compete on the weekends or during some weekday evenings. Club teams compete against other universities and local organizations. Club teams regularly travel to compete locally, regionally, and nationally. There are additional fees to join a club team (fees differ between club teams).
