CREATING A NEW SPORT CLUB

New Sport Clubs begin as student organizations.  All new Sport Clubs will not be eligible to apply to for admission to the Sports Club Council until after one year of existence.

  1. The first step in the new student organization formation process is to complete and submit a  Statement of Intent to Organize form. Once this form is approved by Student Involvement, your new organization is classified as an "Interest Group." At that point, you will be given instructions on the remainder of the formation process. You have SIX weeks to advertise and hold meetings to recruit members.

  2. Student Involvement and Leadership will provide the applying club a packet that must be completed within six weeks. 

  3. Identify at least ten students interested in joining your organization. 

  4. Identify a faculty or staff member that will serve as an advisor to your club. 

  5. Complete the petition for Official Registration Form and Club Constitution and return to Graduate Assistant for Student Involvement and Leadership within six weeks.

Be sure to re-register your club once a year, by logging onto your club's Collegiate Link through your myFAU portal. The Assistant Director of Competitive Sports can help you start a new club or re-activate a club. Please contact the Club Sports Office at (561) 297-4512 or campusrec@fau.edu to schedule a time to meet.
