Sport Club Handbook and Rules

The Sport Club Handbook is a resource for club officers and team members that outlines the important rules and expectations for club members. Check Student Activities and Involvement for information about getting involved on campus, including the RSO University Policies outlined for all student groups.

The Sport Club Compliance Program offers descriptions of consequences associated with failing to comply with said policies and expectations. Clubs should also reference the Illinois State University Code of Student Conduct.

Facility Reservations

Space is not guaranteed and all reservations are subject to change. Please submit all requests no later than two weeks in advance of the event; the earlier the request is made, the better we are able to accommodate.

  • To reserve a non-Campus Recreation/McCormick space, visit the Conference Services Scheduling page
  • Hosting Sport Clubs are responsible for all damage and policy violations committed by club members and/or spectators when using Campus Recreation facilities
  • To cancel the reservation of a space, the Coordinator of Sport Clubs must be notified at least 24 hours in advance or the club may be charged the standard rental rate for the facility.
