Support a Club.

Sport Clubs are registered student organizations that allow students to participate and compete in sports they love. Of the 2,000+ students actively involved in the Sport Clubs program each year, many choose to continue playing a sport they enjoyed in high school, while others take the opportunity to learn a new skill or sport. Our clubs proudly represent the University of Wisconsin-Madison at the regional, national, and international level.

In addition to providing opportunities for competition, the Sport Clubs program also emphasizes leadership, teamwork, skill development, and service. On average, our clubs log over 600 services hours per year.

A gift to the Sport Clubs program allows students to continue pursuing their passions outside the classroom. Your contribution offers financial support for sport club operations, equipment, travel, lodging, competition fees, and uniforms so that team members can proudly represent the University of Wisconsin.

On behalf of our students, we thank you for considering our Sport Clubs in your giving and for improving the Wisconsin Experience for one program, one club, one Badger at a time.
