Rec Clubs

Active Clubs | New Club Application | Waiver

Rec clubs strive to embody all the values of Campus Recreation by being community oriented, safe, sustainable, diverse, accessible, and educational.

Who are we?

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.

How are Rec Clubs different than Intramurals?

How to join

Because our clubs are diverse in their activities and missions, they have different requirements to join. The best way to find out how to join a club is to contact one of the student leaders. Below is the club contact list.

Before participating with a club, you must fill out the Rec Clubs Code of Conduct/Liability Waiver.
