In order to successfully become a member of a MacEwan University Sport Club, you need to complete the following steps:

General guidelines


  1. MacEwan University students who have paid their Sport and Wellness fee are eligible to participate in a Sport Club.

  2. MacEwan University students who have not paid their Sport and Wellness fee are eligible to participate in a Sport Club if they purchase a MacEwan University Sport and Wellness membership or, where possible, opt-in to the Sport and Wellness Fee.

  3. All Sport and Wellness members (including employees, alumni, and public) may be eligible to participate in the Sport Club program, depending on the classification of the Sport Club and league requirements.

  4. Only individuals 18 years or older, with the exception of current MacEwan University students, are eligible to participate in Sport Clubs

  5. Interuniversity athletes are eligible for membership in Sport Clubs. It is strongly encouraged that interuniversity athletes provide written notification to their coach and check policies of the governing body (league, association, etc...) prior to joining Club.


  1. Club Members must abide by all policies, rules and procedures established by MacEwan University, including but not limited to, the Student Rights and Responsibilities and the Sport Club Handbook.

  5. Due to the various risks involved with Sport Clubs, Sport Club staff may initiate different requirements that Sport Club members will have to adhere to that may not be listed in this handbook.

  6. Along with the guidelines for membership outlined in the Sport Club handbook, Sport Club members are required to comply with the guidelines as set forth by national/provincial sport organizations.

  7. Failure to meet these requirements will result in disciplinary action (Section 12) against the member and/or the Club.
