Thanks for the article by Marcos Rodriguez in last week’s Aggie on the Women’s Alpine Ski & Snowboard club’s national championship. It’s great to see sport clubs get some love.
At a time when much of the campus conversation is about changes in competitive athletics, it’s great to be reminded that there are more than 1,400 student-athletes at UC Davis who participate in Campus Recreation’s Sport Clubs program. Not only do our sport club participants demonstrate competitive excellence (watch out for our cycling and rugby clubs, for both men and women), but they also gain valuable leadership skills by raising funds, managing budgets, arranging travel, organizing their team, hiring their coaches, scheduling their matches and much more.
Thanks again for your consideration.
