Clubs are student run and organized programmes supported by the Department of Athletics and Recreation. Please see note below regarding establishing a new Athletic Sport Club. If you have any questions regarding current clubs and club operations, please contact Maggie Cockburn at

Please note that effective August 27th, 2020 (as per the announcement from the University), all in-person Athletics & Recreation facilities and programs are closed until further notice. This includes all community sports activities and programs. Any in-person Club gatherings, practices, meetings etc. are prohibited by the University and all seasons are effectively cancelled or on hold until next term. 

Due to the unprecendented impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our department, we will be unable to review any new club applications for the 2020-21 academic year. Any new applications submitted will be reviewed in the spring of 2021 for possible introduction in the fall of 2021. 

Club sport at McMaster plays a vital role in the success of our student community. We appreciate your understanding as we work through these temporary measures, and look forward to continue striving to enrich wellness through recreation and sport.
