Sports Club

Tier/Point System

How does it work?
All Sport Clubs are placed into a tier based on the total amount of points accumulated in the previous academic year and their overall standing with the program. The tiers range from Tier 1 to Tier 4 with Tier 1 receiving the highest budget allocation. Clubs are earning points in the current academic year of 2015-2016 to be placed into one of the tiers for the following year. For 2015-2016, the point system will total 135. For a club to gain Tier 1 status for the subsequent year they will need to gain 115 of the 135 possible points. Tier 2 clubs will need to gain 90 of the possible 135 points. Tier 3 clubs will have gained less than 90 total points or are within their first year of establishment. Tier 4 clubs are ones that are considered to be on probationary status resulting from poor standing with the Department of Recreational Services. Clubs that are in poor standing resulted from a lack of leadership, organization, and overall lack of compliance for the policies and procedures of the Sport Clubs Program. Status is primarily determined by the points being accumulated throughout the year, but the status will be evaluated at the end of each semester and subject to change based on the discretion of the Sport Clubs Coordinator.
