About Club Sports
A sport club is an organized group of students established to promote their interest and skills of its members in a particular physical activity. Sports & Fitness at the University of Houston-Downtown oversees the sport clubs on campus and reserves the right to approve members. Non-competitive sport clubs are primarily instructive in nature and tend to focus on learning new skills and developing interest in the activity within the university community. Competitive sport clubs allow members to experience intercollegiate competition beyond intramural sports.
Sport clubs may represent the university in local, regional and national competitions. Team members must possess advanced playing skills, make commitment to practices, possess a positive attitude and be supportive of teammates. Tryouts are held where team coaches select the roster. Sports club members must be UHD students and meet cumulative GPA requirements. New incoming students are exempt from this requirement if it’s their first semester here at the University.
