Do you have an interest in, or already participate in a Sport that we don’t currently have a club for? Do you know of at least 9 other students that feel the same way?
Read on to find out more information on what you need to start a new sports club!



A club's constitution is a document that outlines the aims and objectives of your club, the committee and other important rules. Each club should have this document to help guide each year's committee.

  1. Check our Template Constitution for an idea of what is required.
  2. Draft your Constitution and send to the Sports Union President and Sport Development Coordinator
  3. Once approved by an elected committee of students, your club goes live!


  • Each Sports Club should have at least a minimum of 10 paid members to affiliate.
  • These ten members must be a student of the University of Stirling
  • Paid members must also hold a Sports Union membership and Sports Centre  membership (where applicable).

Membership Fees

  • Every Sports Club sets an annual membership fee of at minimum £ 20.00.
  • When deciding fees, consider the core costs (equipment, coaching, travel etc.)

Club Committee


These are the positions tasked with running the sports club. Committee positions must be listed in the club’s constitution and people must be elected in the positions democratically, by vote at a club AGM. You can have as many or as few positions as you like, provided that you have the following: President, Treasurer and Secretary.
