Club sports is a way groups of students with similar interests come together to organize and participate in a specific sport and / or recreational sporting activity. We are committed to developing students in accordance to the Mission of OBU by stimulating spiritual, intellectual, social, cultural and physical development.
Use your existing sporting skills to develop leadership, budgeting, and teamwork skills. Our club captains will develop a team budget, fundraise, schedule games and practices, promote their teams and increase the number of competitive opportunities for OBU students.
If you’re passionate about sports, we encourage you to become a leader within our program!
We have 11 active club sports that compete in local, regional and intercollegiate competitions. Whether you have been playing a sport for years or want to try something new, we encourage you to join a team and stay active throughout your time at OBU!
Membership in a club sport is open to all full-time undergraduate students of OBU. Students involved in club sports are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0, and are to remain in good standing with the University. Failure to meet these requirements may result in temporary or permanent removal from the club sport team.

Rock Climbing Team
Climbing Club provides a community where students, faculty and staff can climb and compete in a fun and challenging environment. No experience is needed and all levels from novice to expert are welcome. Competitions are not mandatory for all members.
A club may choose to establish a membership due that all members must pay. Clubs set the membership due amount and are to cover association memberships, additional apparel, some travel costs, and some officiating costs. Each club may choose to increase membership dues to cover additional cost for their specific sport. Club teams will be responsible for their individual travel to competitions and tournaments. In addition to club dues, clubs raise funds through fundraising events, sponsorships, and requests to the Student Government Association.
Competition and practices vary between clubs. Student leadership and the team coach/sponsor are responsible for developing the competition and practices schedule for their club, and are to submit their proposed schedule to the Office of Intramural and Club Sports no later the end of the spring semester. Time commitments vary between 2-10 hours per week which may include practice, games, tournaments, meetings, and leadership development opportunities.
There will be open try-outs at the beginning of the fall semester. See the club sport tables at Un Cuerpo (club/organization fair) during Welcome Week.
