The Sports Club Council (SCC) was created through a Resolution of the 35th Student Senate in the Spring Semester of 2003. The SCC was created as an agency of the Student Government Association (SGA) to provide funding, training, facilities, and other administrative services to all eligible sport clubs that are members of the agency. Following the creation of the SCC as an agency, the Recreation and Wellness Center (RWC) partnered with the SCC under the programs department of the RWC. The RWC Associate Director of Programs also serves as the program advisor to the SCC. Although the Sport Club Council's budget is requested directly from the Activity and Service Fee Committee (much like the RWC), the RWC provides facilities, administrative support, and the Sport Club Coordinator.
The University of Central Florida (UCF) Sport Club Program is an agency of the UCF Student Government Association (SGA) and is advised by the Sport Club Staff at the UCF Recreation & Wellness Center (RWC). Each sport club is a Registered Student Organization (RSO) with the Office of Student Involvement (OSI). The Sport Club program at UCF exists to provide students opportunities to promote and develop interest in particular sports activities that are predominantly physical in nature and understanding, supports healthy lifestyles and is in alignment with the RWC's mission and values. Interests may be competitive, recreational, instructional or any combination of the three. The Sport Club staff of the RWC believes that involvement in the Sport Club Program enhances development, leadership, and the overall college experience for students by supplementing skills learned in the educational realm. It is the mission of the program to provide diverse sports opportunities for all students across a broad range of skill levels and experiences.

Get Involved in Sport Clubs
Get involved with Sport Clubs! The SCC supports a variety of organizations that are organized and lead by students.
Membership in any student organization is limited to any student who is currently paying activity and service fees and is enrolled with the University of Central Florida. Employees at the University of Central Florida may advise sport clubs but may not participate as a member.
In order to join a sport club, fill out this interest form and a club representative will contact you. You can find more information about different clubs by joining KnightSync and looking at the clubs’ individual websites. Many clubs have tryouts at the start of each semester, while other offer open enrollment throughout the year.
How to Start a Sport Club
Looking to start a club that doesn't already exist? All sport clubs are required to be Registered Student Organizations through the Office of Student Involvement (OSI). Students may form new clubs through OSI at any time. There are specific steps and guidelines that clubs must follow through the Office of Student Involvement before applying to be part of the Sport Club Council. To start a club, students should visit Student Organizations.
After a club is registered with the Office of Student Involvement, they can apply to be part of the Sport Club Council. All steps and forms are outlined in the New Club Application. In order to understand the requirements placed on sport clubs, look at the tier requirements. Among other things, sport clubs are required to fundraise and fulfill community service requirements. The first step towards becoming a sport club is to meet with the Sport Club Council President.
