How to Apply for Official Recognition from the Department of Physical Education and Athletics

Facility space is limited. Therefore, we ask all new teams to go through an application process. Write a letter of application to the athletic director and club sports coordinator explaining why the team is needed and demonstrating the following:

1) Enough undergraduate interest to generate a complete roster that meets the sport’s requirments
2) An established and responsible leadership (team captains)
3) Interest from senior through freshman classes so team will sustain itself from year to year
4) A roster with a list of potential members and contact information
5) A list of potential intercollegiate opponents, if outside competition is planned 
Once approved, teams receive probationary status with limited field access. This period generally lasts one full academic year.
