Not all student organizations engaged in a sport activity are, or can be, recognized as members of the UCCS Club Sports Program. Inclusion in the program is dependent upon proven continued interest in the activity, capabilities for sustaining such interest in the UCCS student community, and the ability of the Campus Recreation to meet club needs via the Club Sports Program. Student organizations should not view membership in the Club Sports Program as an avenue to recognition or facility access. Funding, administrative support and facility access are not guaranteed and more appropriate avenues for those items may exist elsewhere.
Membership in the Club Sports Program provides student organizations with direct access to a variety of services offered through Campus Recreation. The Competitive Sports Staff serves as advisors to clubs with their day to day operations, events, budgeting, scheduling, promotional advice, and ensures a safe and responsible experience.
