How can we get more people involved in the club?

Advertising to different buildings on campus can help generate membership within a club. Clubs are also encouraged to advertise in the Campus Life Weekly email sent out to all students during the fall and spring semesters.

Some clubs create positions and/or committees to allow more members to be involved. Such committees may assist the club in recruiting new members, special events, developing budgets, alumni relations, advertising or social media specialists. Clubs are encouraged to create these positions to generate more involvement- here are some examples:

  • Public Relations: Alerts local media of events and results. Reports club news to the Sports Club Office.
  • Historian: Takes pictures, collects articles and keeps the website up to date.
  • Social: Provides the members with social outlets ranging from intramural teams to weekend trips to local hot spots.

What is the best way to communicate with the Sport Clubs office?

Each sport club has a mailbox located in the Sport Clubs Office in the Pratt Gym. The individual sport clubs should receive outside mail through this mailbox. The Sport Clubs address is:

[Name of Sport Club]
University Recreation & Fitness
SMC Campus Center
614 West Lombard Street
Room 1002
Baltimore, Maryland 21201

All important messages are sent by email to club officers. All club officers e-mail addresses should be registered with the Sport Clubs Office. E-mail is also one of the easiest ways to get in contact with the Assistant Director of Sports Programs to discuss problems. General e-mail inquiries can be sent to: aroskowinski@umaryland.edu

How can our club create its own website and social media accounts?

Sport Clubs are permitted to create their own website and Social Media Accounts. All websites must be maintained by the club, and must communicate all information in good taste. Clubs are also permitted to create social media accounts. All websites and accounts must state that they are run by the club and not the University. Social Media accounts will be removed if they do not portray the club in a positive light.

What are some fundraising activities that our club can do?

Before undertaking any type of fundraising campaign, please see the Assistant Director of Sports Programs to ensure that all efforts are conducted properly. Hosting special events has proven to be a consistent and successful means of raising money. Clubs should be cautious of purchasing items or apparel and incurring debt before getting orders.

Clubs are not permitted to sell raffle tickets or food.
