“Club sports will offer students leadership opportunities,” said Mike Medina, associate athletic director. “Students are elected to leadership positions and oversee many aspects of their team, including budgeting and scheduling.”

Starting a team

Students can submit applications for sports teams now through March 31.

Based on league rules, there may be a certain number of years that a student is eligible to play, depending on the particular sport. Costs will vary by team, but students will pay dues to offset some of the costs associated with club sports.

Most seasons will be approximately two months long, with national tournaments at the end of the regular/conference tournament season.

Student input and, in particular, former and current Student Government Association representatives were instrumental in establishing club sports at Quinnipiac.
