Sport Clubs

Sport Clubs are initiated and managed by Club members with the primary role of the University being to support, assist and advise the student leaders. The key to a successful Sport Clubs program is strong student leadership and involved University support.  The primary goal of this course is to provide Sport Club Administrators with the knowledge and skills needed to manage the challenging and multi-faceted area of Sport Clubs.  Since risk management for participants is a key concern for all Sport Clubs Administrators, the course will focus on how to develop an operational ‘framework’ for Sport Clubs to facilitate better oversight and management — and help ensure a safer environment for Sport Clubs participants.

Youth Camps

The Standard of Care required for Youth Camps is very high — mostly because you are dealing with minors. While some of the risk management issues discussed are identical to those handled on a day-to-day basis in other Campus Recreation programs, many issues are unique to Youth Camps. This course will focus on how to develop an operational ‘framework’ to help organize and manage safe Youth Camps.

The Sport Clubs online course provided an outstanding curriculum that allowed me to gauge our program’s “health”, and critically assess our protocols. The wealth of information and feedback provided throughout the four weeks was really impactful, and will both benefit our student-athletes and enhance my knowledge base.”
