About Sport Clubs

About UNI Sport Clubs

UNI Sport Clubs are co-ed, competitive student-led organizations designed to be an athletic alternative that bridges the gap between the existing UNI Intramural program and UNI Intercollegiate Athletic programs.

With the support of a UNI Recreation Service professional staff member, student volunteers govern, organize, and coordinate the sport clubs. Through participation in UNI Sport Clubs, students gain experience in the areas of group organization, problem-solving, budgeting, time management, and non-profit governance.

The time, effort, and commitment of these students not only enrich their sport clubs, but also allow each sport club to represent the University of Northern Iowa across the state and the nation.

Purpose of UNI Sport Clubs
  • To provide UNI students who have a common sport or physical activity interest an opportunity to participate.
  • To provide UNI students with co-curricular leadership opportunities through the formation, governance, and participation in Sport Club activities.
  • To provide UNI students an opportunity to further their skills, experience competitive events, and enjoy social interactions.
UNI Sport Club Funding

Each sport club at UNI is responsible for raising funds on their own and the club can do this a number of different ways; such as membership dues, club fundraisers, community outreach services, local sponsorships, personal donations or agency donations, and/or requesting UNI Student Activities Fee Moneys through UNI Wellness & Recreation Services (RS) or Northern Iowan Student Government (NISG).

Recreation Services Staff

UNI Recreation Services provides a professional staff member to supervise and advise the UNI Sport Clubs and Sport Club Council.
