Recreational Sports Update - IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
The Recreation Center is closed until further notice in preparation to serve as an alternate care site for the Monadnock region, which is served by Cheshire Medical Center. Collaboration for the effort also includes the City of Keene, Monadnock Community Hospital, Greater Monadnock Health Network, and New Hampshire National Guard.
The rec gymnasium in Spaulding Recreation Center will provide capacity of up to 200 beds to be used in the case of a surge in cases of COVID-19. If needed, the space will be used by COVID-19 patients who can be cared for, and recover, outside of a hospital setting, and who need to remain in quarantine.
CLUB SPORTS PROGRAM
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.
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 Lynne Andrews, the Director of Recreational Sports at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about any of the club sports.
