Information for Club Sports Treasurers

The Recreation Center administers the Club Sports Budget and C-funds through the Club Sports Office x2733 or clubsprt@rice.edu. Student representatives of the Club Sports Committee will allocate the funds provided under the direction of the Club Sports Committee.

Clubs will be responsible for funding the following:

University funds are requested and allocated as follows:

  • All registered clubs submit a budget to the sports club administrator in early September.
  • A Club Sports Committee meeting is held to discuss allocations and department policies.
  • Funds are awarded to each club for the academic year.

Before funds from the budget can be disbursed, all club sports must have completed the following:

  • Club Sport Registration Form
