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 have 6 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!
Active Club Sports
Men's Club Basketball strives to be competitive, build community, and ultimately have fun. We exist to present a competitve opportunity for those who want a chance to exceed the normal competition found on the OBU campus. We also want to build community within the team by traveling together, grabbing meals together, and also engaging in activities outside of the club. Finally, we want to have fun. We want to create a fun atmoshphere and have a great time playing a sport we all care about. A normal season for the club looks like 10-15 games between November through March.
Women’s Club Basketball is a competitive team, participating both in Fall and Spring. We compete against various universities and colleges in and around Oklahoma. Alongside the competitive basketball environment, the team provides an atmosphere of Christian fellowship and sportsmanship. This team does not require a large time commitment, as we practice twice a week and play about ten games throughout the spring and fall seasons. We strive to create a fun and encouraging atmosphere while competing at a higher level in the game of basketball.
Women's Club Volleyball is the perfect and fun way to do what you love, without the huge time commitment. Club volleyball is competitive. We travel to several tournaments in the Spring to universities such as TCU, OU, Texas State, and more! Each member has a special contribution to the team- everyone is very important. We integrate fun with hard work, but faith is also a large part of this organization. We get together for devotionals and bond through the Word of God. Special relationships are made here and we cannot wait to make more!

If you're passionate about sports, we encourage you to become a leader within our program!
Club Ultimate is a fun and competitive team sport. It is a crazy mixture of soccer and football in nature except it requires throwing and catching a disc. Previous experience obviously helpful, but those looking to find a sport to compete in against other universities are more than welcome to come and learn the sport! Overall this is a club for those who enjoy playing the sport because our biggest goal is simply to play. (Go to http://www.usaultimate.org/about/ultimate/how_to_play.aspx for more information)
