Wits Sport works closely with the Wits Sports Council (WSC), a body representing all the university's accredited sports clubs. The Wits Sports Council (WSC) consists of the chairpersons of all the Wits sports clubs and its executive committee is elected at an annual general meeting (AGM). The WSC oversees the general administration and functioning of clubs and makes day-to-day decisions on behalf of the council.

The WSC functions under a constitution approved by the Students Representative Council and the Council of the University. A seven-person WSC executive committee oversees the day-to-day work of the council, and general meetings are held quarterly.
