The purpose of the Club Sports Program is to provide students an opportunity to participate in an organized team or individual sport program and to enhance their skills in a particular sport.
The benefits of club sport participation may include the development of student leadership skills, a team-oriented environment, enhanced physical fitness, development of skills in a particular sport, stress reduction, and friendship.
Club sports are governed by the Club Sports Handbook, which outlines policies, rules, and regulations. Any new club must go through the Office of Student Involvement student organization recognition process as well as Recreational Sports for club sport recognition.
Clubs are funded through the KSC Student Government. The clubs currently receiving administrative support from Rec Sports are Brazilian Jujitsu, KSC dance team, environmental outing, men’s ice hockey, women’s ice hockey, men’s rugby, women’s rugby, men’s soccer, ski/snowboard, Ultimate Frisbee and yoga club.
Please note: These are club sports, not varsity teams.
Dance team, environmental outing, ski/snowboarding and yoga club formerly came under the purview of the Office of Student Involvement and will continue for budget and financial support but now will receive other administrative support from Recreational Sports.
Full-time and part-time matriculated students may join a club. However, students playing on competitive teams must be full-time students.
Continuing Education students may participate on a club sport team if they are members of the Recreation Center, but may be restricted from competing with certain club sports based on the guidelines of the governing body (i.e., rugby, ice hockey).
Interested students can also contact David Sweeney, the Coordinator of Intramural Sports/Club Sports at David.Sweeney@keene.edu for more information about any of the club sports.
Any student interested in participating in a club sport will have to complete the online Club Sports Liability and Release Waiver and Student Medical Questionnaire forms.
