Club Sports Policies
The following policies are for Club Sports and other activity clubs that use the indoor and outdoor recreation facilities.
Clubs must meet the following requirements before submitting a reservation request
- Must be recognized as an official club by Center for Campus Life.
- Must be in good standing with Center for Campus Life (no holds).
- All liability waivers and recognition packets must be completed at the beginning of each school year and turned in at the Campus Center welcome desk.
- All Club Sports are allotted two hours of reserved recreation time per week.
- Once a club has used their reservation quota, the facilities are available on a first come first served basis.
- A club must provide a start and end date for their reservation request.
- During peak hours, when a club does not have a reservation, they cannot monopolize space for more than one hour. This ensures that others have the opportunity to recreate as well.
- Clubs must have at least 10 participants in order to hold a reservation. If turnout is consistently low for a particular club, future reservations for the club will be cancelled.
- For special events (games/tournaments), clubs must request space at least 10 business days in advance via RIT Events.
Martial Arts / Fencing Clubs
Participation in any martial arts activity, with or without weapons, must take place in the presence of a Club Sports Compliance Officer during an activity class or club reservation time. If using space on a first come first served basis, the Compliance Officer must present their ID to building management prior to using the space.
Weekly Club Sport Practices

- To request space for weekly club sport practices at the Gordon Field House & Activities Center, contact Emily Heyman at email@example.com or 585-475-6290.
Club Sports and Intramural Participation
If a sport is played at both the intramural and club level, no more than two club members are allowed on an intramural team.
Non-RIT Participation in Club Sports Activities
Club Sports Special Events
Students from other colleges or universities who participate in RIT Club Sports events (such as volleyball tournaments, swing dances, etc.) would not be required to pay the guest fee. However, the event must be approved by the Center for Campus Life. Also, an RIT member of the club would need to monitor the facility/field entrance in order to verify who is participating in the event and collect all event fees.
Club Sports: Advisors / Instructors / Coaches
We are happy to grant a complimentary recreation membership to advisors, instructors, or coaches who are not affiliated with RIT, but are volunteering their time to help improve the function of these clubs. The Center for Campus Life must approve these individuals in advance and inform the SLC Main Office of the agreement. The free membership is only valid during the semester they are actively participating with the club.
