At the Helm- A Guide to Sailing the Club Sports Waters

What’s happening!

Ahoy Pirates!

Welcome to the 3rd edition of our Club sports Blog. We have a busy week ahead of us and several results from previous week’s competition. Hope you enjoy!

1-      We have started our surprise visits to practice to do roster checks- all members need to have some form of Identification with them. IF someone is practicing or playing and not on the current roster list, you will be subject to a fine.

2-      Effective for the Fall 2011 Semester- Each Club will need to have a faculty/staff advisor. This person is someone other than Gray. Ideally, an advisor would have an interest in helping with home games and practice, have a general interest in the club, help with budget development and be someone to confide in if you had a problem with our staff, etc.

3-      We want Results! Make sure to email Brent after home games and to fill out the results form in your van packet for away matches.

4-      Don’t forget to donate via PayPal by visiting our website!

5-      Congratulations to the Women’s Club Softball team who swept the Tarheels this past Sunday!

Notes From Nance

Ready, Set, Go!!

If all the activity on the basketball courts, in the fitness areas, and throughout the SRC is any indication of what kind of year we are having, success in student involvement is in the air for 2010-2011.After our most successful year ever for post season play, the club sports program is starting the year with 39 active clubs. The Team Training Center has been active all summer with over 60 groups taking the “challenge,” and we are gearing up for the fall. Twenty three eager students have started the year in our new Wellness Living Learning Community in Jones Hall, group fitness classes are full to capacity, and intramural sports continue to hit record numbers. Also, construction on Phase II of the North Recreational Complex has begun and will be completed early spring 2011.All in all it is a great time to be in Campus Recreation and Wellness at ECU! Join us in person, online, on Facebook or Twitter for all the action.

Stay Active!

3-      You need to be looking for a faculty/staff advisor for your club, someone other than Gray. Ideally, an advisor would have an interest in helping with home games and practice, have a general interest in the club, help with budget development and be someone to confide in if you had a problem with our staff, etc.

Inside Gray’s Anatomy-

Hello Pirate Supporters!  Just a friendly reminder that you can donate to the club sports program or an individual club via PayPal, which is located on our website!  As we move forward, clubs need to be seeking someone in the ECU faculty/staff family to become an advisor for their respective club. This person doesn’t have to attend every practice or game; but needs to be someone who has a general interest in the particular activity and can advise the club on decisions such as: budget, tournament direction, fundraiser opportunities, etc.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to come see us!
