The Emory tradition of "Athletics for All" challenges and inspires the entire
University by providing an example of community building and balance of body, mind
and spirit. Through Play Emory, the Department of Athletics & Recreation provides a
myriad of facilities and programs that promote the physical, emotional and social growth
of individuals through the enhancement of lifelong skills revolving around sustainable fitness and wellness principles. Our programs complement the mission of Emory University
and provide experiential learning and leadership opportunities for our students, faculty, staff and alumni.
A comprehensive Club Sports program is an integral part of campus recreation. It bridges the gap between intramural sports activities and intercollegiate athletics. Club Sports give Emory University’s community an opportunity to participate in competitive sport activities, improve skill levels, gain leadership experience, and enjoy the recreational and social fellowship derived from sports involvement.
A Club Sport is a student-run organization that has been given a temporary or permanent charter from the Club Sports Council (CSC) in cooperation with the Athletic & Recreation Department and the Student Government Association. Club Sports are governed by the rules and regulations governing all student organizations under OSLS.
The Club Sports Executive Board and Play Emory administer the Club Sports Program. The Club Sports Coordinator is a full time staff member who reviews disbursement of funds, schedules facility space, and promotes the objectives of the program. The key to the success of this program and each individual club is student leadership and participation.
