Registration/Start A Club

Renewing Your Club

All Club Sports recognized within the program are required to re-register through Anchor Link annually through the Dean of Students.  Renewal includes updating the organization’s officer contacts and membership roster. Clubs that fail to renew will not be recognized by the Club Sports program and will not receive funding, facility space, or have access to program resources.
