Rec Clubs

Portland State Rec Clubs is a student-led program that provides opportunities for recreation and intercollegiate competition between students of all skill and ability levels. Participate in your favorite sports and activities, build community, and practice transferable leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment. Our 30+ clubs are educational, accessible, organized by students, and funded by student fees. Join an existing Rec Club or start a brand new club of your own.



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.
