NYU CLUB SPORTS are student organizations initiated and administered by their members under the sponsorship, assistance, and advice, for risk management purposes, of the Department of Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation. In order to be considered for inclusion as an NYU Club Sport, the sport must be a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) or an International Olympic sponsored sport.** Further, there must exist a collegiate umbrella organization and a collegiate playing league with rules, safety standards, operating guidelines and opportunities for intercollegiate competition in the North East Region of the United States. No new clubs will be allowed that significantly duplicate an existing NYU Varity Sport, Club Sport, or any other student organization on campus.
How to Start:
Once these steps have been completed, the Student Advisory Committee will vote on the proposal. If a club is accepted, they are eligible for support from the Sport Clubs office in scheduling, practice time and space and organizing competitions. New clubs are responsible for completing all required paperwork and attending all mandatory meetings and training sessions. New clubs are ineligible for financial support until the next budget cycle and full school year.

Applications to the New Club Development (NCD) Program are due by the last Friday in September.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Applications to the Student Activities Board NCD Program that propose a club that would be classified as an NCAA or Olympic sport will not be approved by the Student Activities Board. Please follow the instructions for "Starting a Club Sport" for NCAA or International Olympic sponsored sports.
