Rec Clubs Program

Join one of our 40 Rec Clubs!

Contact individual club officers directly for details, or Sam Rodenberg, Intramurals manager, at for general program information.

The University of Washington Rec Clubs program is comprised of various student organizations focused on a particular sport. Many clubs are organized for the primary purpose of competition, whether it is intercollegiate or between other members; while other clubs are recreational or instructional in nature. All clubs practice regularly in order to promote and develop the skills and interests of their members.

The clubs are organized and administered by students with the officers providing the organizational leadership for their club’s activities. The clubs are encouraged to be self-supporting, with the UW Recreation department providing limited financial support, facility usage as well as guidance. The Rec Clubs administrative staff assist the clubs in fulfilling their goals and objectives.

Please check the Rec Clubs Directory to see information about each Club, as well as social media feeds.
