ISU Sport Clubs

ISU Sport Clubs are student organizations focused on sports and recreational activities.

Many Sport Clubs are created because the talent, dedication to the sport and interest demand an opportunity for students other than varsity athletics or because no varsity team exists.

Sport Club Director:

Shelby Williams

(208) 282-3516

Office Hours:

Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

How do I join or start a sport club?

To join an existing Sport Club:

Please contact respective club members for more details. Details about club members can be found on the "Directory" page under the sport clubs menu or you can simply click at the highlighted text.

To start/reactivate a Sport Club:

Please contact Shelby Williams at to ask about starting a sport club that is not currently active. Our checklist for starting our sport club is also available.

Clubs are registered, chartered, and governed by the ISU Department of Campus Recreation.

Sport Clubs must have a National Governing Body (NGB) for their sport to provide standards of competition and safety guidelines in their respective sports. The Sport Clubs Program recognizes NGB's from the Olympic Family or an established NGB with developed standards of competition.

Sport Club FAQ

Sport Club Council Meetings:

Important discussions Sport Club Council meetings will include information and updates about:

  • participation in the Sport Clubs Program
  • individual Sport Club activities, e.g., scheduling of new activities, results of competitions and fundraisers
  • the development of Sport Clubs policy
  • recommendations, advice, and assistance in the decision-making process in other matters when requested
  • Sport Club activities
  • information regarding Sport Clubs activities, policies, and procedures
  • how to serve on various committees
  • distributing funds to the individual Sport Clubs

Each Sport Club is required to have one representative to the Sport Clubs Council. This member must be a current active student Sport Club member.

Each member is entitled to one vote and must be present to vote. Coaches, advisors, Sport Club officers and representatives may attend the Council meetings; however, they will not be voting members.

The Sport Clubs Council will meet once a month during the academic school year. If the representative is not able to attend a meeting, they must arrange for a substitute and notify the Assistant Director 24 hours prior to the meeting.

In addition to Sport Clubs Representatives, one to two Senators from ASISU will serve as non-voting members of the Council. These Senators will serve as liaisons between the Council and ASISU and seek to serve the best interests of the students.

The constitution governing the Sport Clubs Council is available in appendix A of the Sport Clubs Policies and Procedures Manual. The constitution is a dynamic document that can change throughout the academic year.
