Below you will find the Sport Club Application form. Each new applying club is required to complete this application in order to be considered for the Sport Club program. A checklist has been prepared and included in order to ensure that all the appropriate steps are completed.
Please be sure that your application is complete and accurate. The information you provide will be used to support your request for sanctioning into the UNB Sport Club program. Should you have any questions or require further assistance, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. The Coordinator will meet with all Club applicants.
2. Applicants are to submit all required forms and documents.
3. UREC will review the application and render a decision on ratification status.
4. If status is granted, the Club can immediately start to organize themselves and begin participation during the approved term.
5. Once approved, newly ratified clubs will be on probation for a period of one calendar year. If clubs have not met the requirements of the Sport Club program by the end of this probation period they will be de-ratified.
UREC will evaluate an application based on its merits with regard to the best interest of the University community and Recreation Services. Any group proposing to start a new Sport Club must provide evidence that:
a. Its membership is open to all UNB students and UREC members (typically a maximum of 35% of the participants may be non-student members);
b. It intends to carry on activities that do not infringe any federal, provincial, and municipal laws, nor any UNB or Recreation Services policies and procedures;
c. It does not share the same mandate as an existing UREC Sport Club or any Club that has been de-ratified within the last year.
d. It is an activity-based Club, whose mandate is recreation and/or physical activity.
An application may be denied based on the following:
1. An insufficient number of students willing to support the new club.
2. A lack of on-campus or off-campus facilities.
3. The expense to run the club is greater than the financial viability.
4. The inability to purchase additional liability insurance for the club.
5. Duplication of a similar club that already exists and is active.
6. Does not support UREC’s mission.
