Club Sports Office
Plourde Recreation Center
The Assumption College Club Sports Program is a division of the Campus Recreation Office. Each Club Sport is developed, governed and managed by its student membership through working with the Campus Recreation Administrative Staff. The key to the success of this program, and each club, is student leadership, interest, involvement and participation.
Club Sports are student organizations established to promote and develop individual interest in various sports and recreational activities. Club Sports may be instructional, recreational, or competitive in nature. Assumption's Club Sports are designed to promote growth in leadership, responsibility, decision making, public relations, organization and fiscal management, as well as specific sport-related skills. All Club Sports are student-run by an elected executive board.
Students in each Club are responsible for the internal organization and conduct of their Club activities. Therefore, the success and strength of the Club Sports program depends upon the initiative, motivation, and leadership of the officers and the involvement of club members. The management and organization of a Club Sport is an educational experience providing many opportunities for student growth. Each Club Sport drafts their constitution and by-laws; conducts club meetings; establishes dues to offset club expenditures; plan fund raising projects; coordinate practices, competition and special events; publicize club events; and collaborate with other club members to develop a successful program. No Club may restrict its membership on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation or disability.
DEFINITION OF A CLUB SPORT:
A Club Sport is defined as a recognized student organization, which exists to promote and develop interest in a particular sport or physical activity. A Club may be instructional, recreational or competitive, or may be involved in any combination of these elements. Club Sports are strictly voluntary. The hope is that involvement in a Club Sport enhances the students’ college experience and adds value to the students’ overall education.
Club Sports provide athletic opportunities through administration by the Campus Recreation Office as a student organization. Participation can be comprised of all co-ed, men, or women. There are three (3) levels of Club Sports:
1. RECREATIONAL – Scheduled practice time for program instruction. Activity by group is for fun and relaxation.
2. INSTRUCTIONAL – Scheduled practice time and program instruction as student interest warrants. Tournament opportunities could be available, though not necessarily required. Skill level can range from beginner to advance.
3. COMPETITIVE – Scheduled competitive meets with other Club Sports or sub-varsity programs with any institution, requires coach(s), establishes a regular practice schedule, and develops on-going fundraising activities through outside sources. Enhanced level of skill development, fundraising and administration.
