Club Sports

Student playing soccerThe Club Sport program managed by Mariner Recreation includes some of the fastest growing student organizations at Coastal Georgia. Club Sports are for students who seek long-term playing periods, in comparison to the shorter intramural seasons. Teams typically compete throughout both fall and spring semesters.

Club Sports are unique student organizations; the overall duties of the team, or organization, are fulfilled by students. They may be organized for instructional, recreational and/or competitive purposes. Club Sports help individuals build relationships with other students who share similar interests.

Current organized clubs include soccer, volleyball, and basketball.
