About Sports Clubs

The Sports Club Council (SCC) was formed in the fall of 2000 to represent recognized club sports at RU. The Sports Club Council now represents 22 clubs, Equestrian, Ice Hockey, Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Men's Rugby, Men's and Women's Ultimate Frisbee, Men's & Women's Soccer, Men's and Women's Volleyball, Softball, Baseball, Men's and Women's Basketball, Football, Swimming, Skeet & Trap, Fishing, and Tennis. 

The goal of the SCC is to represent recognized sport clubs at RU that continuously remain in good standing and represent RU in a positive light.

Student Recreation & Wellness saw the need to create the SCC for sport clubs that have unique needs from that of other clubs. The SCC, which is funded directly by Student Finance Committee, helps provide partial funding to those organizations that can meet its standards. Its founding members included the Redcoats, Ice Hockey, Men's Rugby and Women's Rugby.

Since its inception, the SCC has helped develop 22 sport clubs with more than 450+ participants. These clubs participate in collegiate leagues similar to those of varsity teams. Most of the SCC members have participated in National Tournaments throughout the U.S. and achieved an abundant amount of success.
