Join Our Clubs

Sport offers so many opportunities to students, not only on the field of play but off it. Have you got a specific skill set that will be of benefit to a student committee or perhaps you want to cheer on from the side-lines supporting our teams?

We hope you find your tribe by being a part of a club at University College Cork. To join a Club online please use our C&S Portal.

Volunteer, Coach or Mentor

UCC sports clubs provide many opportunities to individuals on the playing field, however there are just as many experiences to be gain off the field by volunteering with a club. 

Whether you're a student, graduate, staff member or from the local community, perhaps you have a skill set that would help develop a UCC sports club even further. 

Can you spare some time each week, or once a month, or perhaps help out with one off events, offer support and advice to a club?  Then why not email with details of how you would like to get involved and if you have a specific club in mind that you would like to volunteer with.
