Sport Clubs in COVID-19

Sport Clubs are not hosting or traveling to competitions in Spring 2021, due to COVID-19. Practices will continue in Spring 2021 with appropriate Guidelines for Operation. Please read the Sport Club Guidelines for Operation during COVID-19 (PDF) to learn how your Sport Club will operate in Spring 2021. All sport club athletes received an informational email on September 1st with concise reminders.

  • Sport Club athletes will wear a mask at all times, including during practice, unless in water.
  • Sport Club athletes will remain 10 feet apart at all times, including during practice.
  • Sport Club athletes and coaches may not carpool, and must individually commute to practice.
  • Sport Club athletes may share ball sports equipment (ex. baseballs/soccer balls/ basketballs/ultimate discs, etc), only if everyone disinfects the ball sports equipment before and after drills, and only if everyone also uses hand sanitizer after disinfecting the ball sports equipment in a drill.
  • Sport Club athletes shall not share any personal equipment (ex. bats, gloves, apparel), and must bring their own personal equipment.
  • Sport Club athletes must arrive dressed to practice, and leave immediately after the conclusion of practice.
  • Questions about Sport Club practice may be directed to Daniel Gardner, Assistant Director of Sport Clubs, at dwgardner@wm.edu or 757-221-2959.

Sport Clubs provide an opportunity to live a balanced life academically, athletically and socially. The Sport Club program complements the university’s intercollegiate athletic programs and Intramural Sport activities. Clubs receive administrative support and advice from the Department of Campus Recreation, but they are independent student organizations that are student-initiated and student-led. Club Officers lead and organize practices, meetings, competitions and events. The clubs may practice on or off campus, and many clubs compete against other colleges and universities on the local, regional and national levels.

Financial Aid for Sport Clubs

If you receive financial aid from William & Mary and are interested in applying for Sport Club funding please fill out this Financial Aid for Sport Clubs Form (pdf) and email it to the Office of Financial Aid at the address listed on the form. Every effort will be made to remove financial barriers for those who meet established criteria. Campus Recreation is committed to ensuring that all students interested in Sport Clubs have the opportunity to participate. Because we understand that involvement in Sport Clubs can be cost prohibitive for some students, a fund has been established to create opportunity for those who have demonstrated financial need.

Inquiries regarding individual clubs should be directed to the club contacts listed in the Sport Club Directory.

Questions about the Sport Club program should be directed to Dan Gardner, Assistant Director of Campus Recreation - Sport Clubs at (757) 221-2959; or email [[rsclub]].
