About Club Sports

The University of Cincinnati Club Sports Board (CSB) promotes student participation in a variety of physical and athletic activities, gives students opportunities to engage in the activity of their choice at various skill levels, contributes to the development of student leadership, and provides a bond between individual clubs.  While the office of Student Activities & Leadership Development assists in the development and growth of the Club Sports Board, the emphasis of the program is on student leadership and involvement.  The existence of each club sport and the success of the Club Sports Board are dependent upon student interest and involvement. If you are a club member and would like to take part of a focus group in the future regarding clubs sports or provide any current feedback, please contact Susie Mahoney.

Club Sports Allocation Committee (CSAC)

The concept of the Club Sports Allocation Committee came about during a focus group of club sports student leaders in the spring of 2012. The committee is formed in the fall each year. Interest Forms are due Fri., Sept. 19th, 2014. All CSAC members are current club sports members, UC students, and must have been involved with a club sport during the past academic year.

The committee is advised by the Program Coordinator of Club Sports and consists of 6-8 total members with 2 club sports members per each tier (recreational, competitive, nationally competitive, and semi-varsity). Each CSAC member is from a different club, so 6-8 club sport organizations will be represented on the committee. CSAC will meet in the fall semester to discuss additional funding requests and the process for budget allocations in the spring semester. This committee is charged with allocating the club sports organizations yearly funds through an allocation process each spring semester. Additionally, CSAC will review and provide feedback on additional funding requests.

Here is a tentative timeline of dates for CSAC and the allocation process.

  • Training/Expectations Meeting - end of September/beginning of Oct.
  • Hearings throughout the fall (Additional Funding Requests)
  • Meeting – week of Feb., 23rd – Budget Allocation Review of Process and Preparation
  • Meeting – week of March 4th to review budgets
  • Allocation Meetings – week of March 30th and April 6th
