Portland State Rec Clubs is a student-led program representing different sports, games, and physical activities. Rec Clubs are organized by students and funded by student fees. We encourage participation by providing opportunities for recreation and intercollegiate competition between students of all skill-levels.

Rec Clubs Council

The Rec Clubs Council (RCC) is composed of five elected student club leaders that serve as the funding body for all of the Rec Clubs, advise on Rec Clubs policies and procedures, and help handle Rec Clubs conduct issues. All Rec Clubs at Portland State University are represented by the Rec Clubs Council.
The purpose of the RCC is to support learning in student based organizations and nurture student leadership opportunities. The RCC will represent and promote the Recreation Clubs as a whole to the greater campus community. The RCC also provides a venue through which students can create new recreation clubs and member clubs may grow their organizations.
