A REC Club is a group of students that voluntarily organize to further their common interests in an activity through participation and competition. Whether you are interested in badminton, tennis or climbing, REC Clubs offer an exciting and healthy opportunity to be active in an energetic environment.
All you need to get a REC Club off the ground is the desire to develop your leadership skills and a group of people with a similar interest in a particular sport or activity. REC Clubs are student led and foster an atmosphere of leadership development through involvement in fundraising, public relations, organization, administration, budgeting, scheduling as well as the development of skills in a particular sport or recreational activity. REC Club Student Executive member receives Co-Curricular Recognition on their University of Manitoba transcript for each year that they serve as an executive member.
Recreation Services provides these voluntarily-run student organizations with facility space, administrative support and promotional opportunities in an effort to ensure that each REC Club is as successful as possible.
To learn more about each club, follow the links in the left menu.
Note: As REC Clubs are self-funded some may charge additional dues to cover expenses related to specialty equipment, travel costs and more. Contact the representative club president for more information.
