Welcome to Club Sport Activities
Acadia’s Competitive Club sports program are student-led groups that have been formed by and for the Acadia student community where students enjoy the chance to meet new people with similar interests, benefit from the opportunity to represent Acadia University in leagues and competitions external to Acadia and who pursue competitive sport activities as a component of overall student wellness.
Competitive club sports are voluntary student led organizations whose members assume the leadership and financial responsibilities of club activities. All club members must be part time or full time Acadia students to be eligible to participate in club activities. All Competitive Club Sports must be registered with the Department of Athletics, and all members are required to adhere to Acadia University’s, as well as Acadia’s Department of Athletics’, guidelines, and policies. As a registered competitive club sport, programs receive support in scheduling campus facilities, may apply for certain services, and receive basic support for club sport activities.
Like all “official” clubs at Acadia, Acadia Competitive Club Sports are required to become ratified societies recognized by the Acadia Students’ Union.
For students interested in sport and recreational clubs centered around leisure, activity instruction, and socializing, a list of these active clubs and guidance on how to start recreational club, can be found on the Acadia Students’ Union website.
How do I start a Club Sport?
The first step to starting a sport club is to find other students with a shared interest for the sport or activity. From there, student groups wishing to start a recognized Club Sport must complete a Club Sport application form and submit the required documents. If you are interested in starting a Club Sport, please email Kim Wallace for an application package. New Club Sport Applications are due by June 30th each year.
