Over time, the popularity of the type of sports, in which people like to participate, changes. At AU Sport, we encourage and support students who want to establish a new sports club.

For those wanting to undertake this process, we ask that you look at the following documents to assist you with your understanding of what is involved in managing an AU Sport club:

It is important to note that, for a club to qualify for affiliation with AU Sport, the club must exist on its own for 18 months and its management must keep in regular contact with AU Sport. No club is permitted to use the ‘Adelaide University’ name without permission from AU Sport and the University.

AU Sport has recently welcomed the AU Cycling Club to its affiliated club list, after successfully establishing itself through the 18 month probation period. Please read their ‘Annual Report’, which highlights the club's growth and may give you some ideas on how to start a new club.
