Executive Board

The Sport Club Executive Board consists of five student members and may have additional non-voting members. Members are elected by their peers and serve as a liaison between the Sport Club Council and the Sport Club staff, assist with select operations of the Sport Club program, plan Sport Club events throughout the year, and assist with the budget allocation process.

Each sport club receives an annual allocation from the Student Service Fee to help offset the expenses of the club. This allocation does not cover all of their expenses. The remainder of the expenses which may include travel, league fees, officials, equipment, and all other operating costs must be subsidized through membership dues, team fundraisers and generous donations from others. Any donations made will go directly to the sport club specified and the club may spend the funds in accordance with university and Rec Sports spending guidelines. Thank you for your support!

*Please note: Sport Clubs are not considered as a charitable organization by the IRS and the university does not provide official tax receipts. Please consult with your tax advisor or attorney regarding tax deduction questions.
