3 INTRODUCTION The Club Sports Program at Stevens Institute of Technology is administered by the Stevens Institute of Technology Department of Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation. Stevens provides funding to Club Sports as well as resources, assistance and guidance to the individual clubs. Each club is formed, developed, governed and administered by the student membership of that particular club and overseen by the Office of Campus Recreation, their advisor and/or their coach. This handbook has been prepared as a guide to assist student officers in the administration of their club sport program. The policies and procedures contained herein apply to all of the clubs. Each club officer and coach is required to be familiar with the policies and procedures so that they may ensure their club s activities are consistent with the guidelines outlined in this manual. Information, policies and procedures may change or be added to this handbook at any time. When this happens, a copy of the addition or change will be sent to all club sport participants. Questions regarding the policies and procedures within this manual should be directed to John Maurizi, the Director of Campus Recreation, whose office is located in the Schaefer Center. Mission Statement The Stevens Institute of Technology Club Sports Program, consistent with Intercollegiate Athletics and the Institute s mission, strives to provide leadership and recreational opportunities to the student body of the Institute, in order for them to enhance their knowledge and skill in a specific sport of interest, while at the same time retaining social, cognitive and physical experiences.

Philosophy of the Club Sports Program All clubs within the Club Sport Program are oriented toward physical activity and sport. In every case, the underlying purpose of any individual club is to join together those members of the Stevens community that share a common activity interest. A club s focus must be competitive with the sole purpose of intercollegiate play on the club sport level. For each club, however, the scope of the club s activities must be consistent with its constitution. 1

24 CODE OF CONDUCT PHILOSOPHY To be admitted to Stevens and to its baccalaureate programs, and to represent Stevens in club competition is a distinct privilege and must be earned by positive performance both on and off the field. By accepting this privilege, the student-athlete accepts the responsibilities outlined by the Code of Conduct in the Stevens Student Handbook. DISCIPLINARY ACTION Dependent upon the nature of the offense, disciplinary action for misconduct by members of a club sport will either be remanded directly to the Dean of Student Life, or will be dealt with by the Director of Campus Recreation. NOTE: Certain violations that are of particular concern to Club sports and the Athletic Department are listed below. Their incorporation in this document mandates that club officers have a thorough understanding of these policies and assume responsibility for ensuring that their organization abides by said policies at all times. However, this does not excuse team members from ignorance of the remainder of Stevens regulations. ALCOHOL POLICY Please refer to the Student Handbook for the complete Stevens policy concerning alcohol. Note that the Campus Recreation Office and the Department of Athletics prohibits the use of alcohol before, during or after department sponsored athletic events. FIREARMS POLICY While it stands to reason that a student may wish to establish a legitimate club that makes use of firearms or archery equipment, Stevens has a strict policy regarding possession and storage of weapons. Please refer to the student handbook for the complete Stevens policy concerning firearms. Questions regarding the implementation of this policy in regards to the establishment of a club sport should be directed to the Dean of Student Life. HAZING POLICY Hazing and initiations are absolutely prohibited by Stevens Institute of Technology and by the Department of Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation. Further, hazing is against the law in New Jersey. These acts are defined as any behavior that is physically, emotionally or psychologically abusive to an individual or selected group of individuals for the purpose of gaining entrance or acceptance into an established group. An individual s consent to hazing or initiation is not a defense for the behavior. Any team, group or individual that engages in this behavior will be subject to serious sanctions by the university and the Department of Athletics. These sanctions range from university probation and suspension from athletic contests to expulsion from the team and/or the university.

25 SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY The Department understands the popularity and usefulness of all social networking websites. You are asked to remember that you are representatives of Stevens Institute of Technology and the Stevens Ducks. Please keep in mind that once you post something, it is available to anyone in the world. Any text or photo posted becomes the property of the site (regardless of how you limit access to your site) and are no longer within your control. You should never post information, photos or other items online that could embarrass you, your family, your team, the Department or the University. Understand that if information or pictures that are posted represent violations of a team, Department, University and/or NCAA policies, then you may face disciplinary action.

Name: Date: Signature: Team: Phone Number: Stevens

28 ASSUMPTION OF RISK, AUTHORIZATION AND RELEASE AGREEMENT FOR PARTICIPATION IN CLUB AND INTRAMURAL SPORTS The parties to this Release are (Participant), (Participant s parents or legal guardian if Participant is under age eighteen, all referred to hereafter jointly and severally as Participant ) and the Trustees of the Stevens Institute of Technology ( Stevens or the University ). The Participant has chosen to participate in Club and/or Intramural Sports (referred to hereafter as the Activity ).

29 Participant understands and acknowledges that protective equipment must be worn properly for athletic activities as appropriate. Participant understands and acknowledges that if Participant has a question or is concerned about the proper use, fit, or condition of any equipment, Participant is responsible for immediately addressing such concerns with the Director of Campus Recreation. Participant specifically agrees to assume all of the risks and responsibilities surrounding Participant s participation in athletic activities at Stevens, including but not limited to the use of any Stevens equipment or other property. 3. Physical Condition and Ability. Participant attests that Participant is in good physical condition and is physically capable of engaging in the Activity. Participant understands that Stevens does not screen participants for illness, injuries, allergies or other medical conditions which would prevent or limit participation in any activity. It is the responsibility of Participant to evaluate the Participant's ability to participate in any and all activities. Participant acknowledges and agrees that s/he has responsibility for preventing potential injuries including, but not limited to, by exercising judgment in calibrating activities to his/her individual level of ability, knowing how to use any equipment prior to use, knowing how to perform any exercise activities with proper form, ceasing activities and seeking medical treatment if a potential injury occurs, and complying with medical recommendations. 4. Release, Hold Harmless and Indemnification. Participant agrees and hereby does release and hold harmless Stevens and its trustees, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives, students, and insurers, and each of their respective successors and assigns (collectively, Released Parties ), both in their personal and official capacities, from any and all liability for any harm, injury, damage, claim, demand, or cause of action of any kind or nature that may be brought by or on behalf of the Participant, any member of Participant s family, Participant s heirs, administrators, beneficiaries, and personal representatives, and any of their respective successors or assigns ( Releasing Parties ), arising out of any and all known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen, physical, emotional or other personal injuries, damages to or loss of property, and any consequences thereof which may be sustained by Participant or other Releasing Parties arising out of or in connection with the Activity.
