Club Sports at BU

The Club Sports Program at Bellarmine University is designed to provide the opportunity for full-time students, both undergraduate and graduate, to participate in a variety of competitive athletic activities. Club Sports teams are formed, organized, governed, and directed by students under the guidance of the Assistant Director of Campus Recreation, the Student Activities Center (SAC), and the Student Government Association (SGA).

Club Sports benefit students’ happiness and well-being, as well as helping them improve their physical and mental health through continued sport participation. Club Sports also allow students to establish the habit of participating in recreational activities so that students can remain active in the sport after leaving Bellarmine University. By participating in Club Sports, students can create lifelong friendships and gain a sense of belonging at Bellarmine University along with cultivating personal development and growth in areas such as leadership, communication, and teamwork.

Playing a club sport is a way for students to remain competitive after high school by competing against other schools and in regional or national arenas without taking on the higher demands of varsity athletics. Learn more about our current club sport offerings on Engage.

Club Sports are founded and maintained by current Bellarmine University students. If you are interested in starting a new Club Sport or would like more information about individual teams or the program, please contact Cynthia Lally at 502.272.8341 or
