Lowell Hawks Field with Soccer Players

Sport clubs are recognized student organizations that emphasize a specific sport or physical activity and stress the importance of student development and leadership. Sport clubs are strictly voluntary, student managed and offer activities that can be recreational, instructional or competitive in nature.

Club Sport teams help bridge the gap between intramural sports and varsity athletics allowing participants to enjoy extramural competition without the pressures of highly structured varsity sports. Clubs are student directed, with members required to assume responsibility for organizing contests and fundraising activities, and can be a great opportunity to develop leadership skills. Most club teams compete in leagues against other local and regional teams and some even compete nationally.

Please take time to browse the current clubs and sport networks and navigate the left links on our website to find out how to start or join a club, download club forms, register as an alum or view the club sports photo gallery. Check out the Club Sports highlight video here.

Club Sports Inclusion Policy

Clubs are open to full-time students, full-time Faculty/Staff and full-time graduate students regardless of race, creed, sex, national origin, sexual orientation or disabilities. Divisions of competition for UMass Lowell Campus Recreation are men's, women's and open categories. When a gender designation is requested/required for an activity, students may select and participate in the group they identify as/with. However, some competitive clubs may have their own specific eligibility guidelines set by their respective sports' governing body, which have specific standards for collegiate competition. For any additional questions or information, please contact Joe Pitti.

You Can Play

We wanted to show our support for the LGBTQ community at UMass Lowell so we decided to create a "You Can Play" YouTube video emphasizing that any student can play Club Sports no matter how you identify.  For more information on our inclusive policies at Campus Recreation, check out our page devoted to inclusion resources.
