Club Sports FAQ

What is the difference between intramural sports and club sports? Toggle Accordion

The Intramural Sports program provides the structure for competitive and noncompetitive sport play. Intramural teams play on campus and only play against other UMD students. Members of a  club sport may compete against other university and college teams. Clubs are responsible for scheduling their own practices, recruiting members, requesting funding, arranging travel and maintaining club equipment. Most clubs practice 2-4 times a week, in addition to any scheduled competitions or tournaments.

What is the difference between club sports and Intercollegiate Athletics? Toggle Accordion

Intercollegiate Athletic programs are sanctioned by the NCAA and supported by the Maryland Intercollegiate Athletic Department. Club sports are student organizations supported by University Recreation & Wellness.

How do clubs operate? Toggle Accordion

Clubs are managed or led by student officers. The officers are responsible for the successful operation of the club including but not limited to budgeting, scheduling practices, coordinating league schedules, planning events, fundraising, policy adherence, and communicating with the Club Sports professional staff.

Who can join a club sport? Toggle Accordion

While there may be league or conference restrictions on who may participate, the following individuals are eligible to join:

● Currently enrolled UMD undergraduate students

● Currently enrolled UMD graduate students

● Currently employed UMD faculty and staff

● Current members of the Maryland Alumni Association (no more than 10% of the Club roster may be Alumni)

University Affiliates and Shady Grove students are not eligible to join a club sport team.

Competitive eligibility is based on each team's governing body regulations.

Clubs do not discriminate based on race, religion, color, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, personal appearance, age, national origin, political affiliation, or physical or mental disability.

How do I join a club? Toggle Accordion

If you are interested in joining a sport club , the first step is to email the appropriate club contact for additional information. You might consider asking them about club culture, team organization, and social opportunities, as well as details like practice times, locations, and fees.  In addition, most clubs have websites and/or social media sites which are accessible through the Directory of Teams.

When can I join a club? Toggle Accordion

Participants may join a team during the open enrollment period at the start of each semester.  Simply show up to a club’s practice or attend an informational meeting during the open enrollment period.  For information on practices times and locations contact the Club Sports Office at 301-226-5500 or clubsports@umd.edu

The open enrollment period for each semester is:

  • FALL: First Day of Class – October 1

  • SPRING: First Day of Class – March 1

After the open enrollment period has ended, students may only join a club by coming to the Club Sports Office located on Level 0 of the Eppley Recreation Center, Room 0121.  

Members who join outside the open enrollment period will not be able to travel with the club for 1 week.

Do I have to try out? Toggle Accordion

Anyone can join a sport club regardless of their ability. However, due to financial limitations, clubs may limit the number of members that travel to compete. Tryouts or evaluations may be necessary to select traveling teams. In addition, A, B and C squads may be formed based on the size of the club to allow for different levels of competition and participation.

Are there fees to join? Toggle Accordion

Clubs set their own fees. The cost of being a part of a sport club greatly varies depending on which club you are interested in joining. Because clubs are financially supported by University Recreation & Wellness and/or the Student Government Association, fees are limited and range from $0-$1,000 per year. These fees help fund gear, travel and other activities. Clubs try to limit out-of-pocket expenses by participating in various fundraisers. For more information on the specifics of what it costs to participate in a certain club, contact the club directly.

How often are practices? When are they held? Toggle Accordion

Most clubs practice 3-4 times/week for 1-2 hours. Practice attendance may be considered when selecting squads and traveling teams. Clubs are responsible for organizing and planning individual club practices and workouts.  

Most clubs practice at various facilities across campus including the Eppley Recreation Center, School of Public Health, Reckord Armory, Ritchie Coliseum, RecWell Turf, and the Engineering & Frat Row grass fields.  

Some clubs practice off campus. These clubs include Ice Hockey, Crew, Sailing, Baseball, Equestrian, Paintball and Boxing. In most cases, clubs coordinate car pools to off-campus practice locations.

How do I learn more about a specific club? Toggle Accordion

Information can be found on the club’s website or social media account, by emailing the club contact and by inquiring in person at the Club Sports Office. The office is located on Level 0 of the Eppley Recreation Center, Room 0121 and is open from 10am - 6pm, Monday - Friday during the Fall and Spring semester.

How do I form a new club? Toggle Accordion

Don’t see your sport listed in the club directory? First, check to see if your sport is a student organization at the University of Maryland, College Park, but not a recognized Sport Club through University Recreation & Wellness (RecWell). A listing of all student organizations can be found through OrgSync.

If there is not another student organization for your sport and you’re interested in forming a new club or applying for RecWell recognition please reference the procedures within the Club Sports Handbook.
