Otter Dance Team
Sporty Club of the Year
The goal of the Otter Dance Team is to support CSUMB students and athletes by showing school spirit through performances during home sporting events, rallies and competitions. The team represent dance as an artistic sport that provides a safe and fun atmosphere for young adults who want to share their passion for dance, and their pride for being important role models not only for CSUMB, but also for the community that surrounds the campus.
Why they won: The Sports Club Council believes this club goes above and beyond the required standards at every opportunity presented whether that be in : Exemplifying Otter Pride and enhancing the Otter Experience; Supporting the efforts of other clubs and individuals in their pursuits and causes; Providing an outstanding example of what it is to be a “thriving” club much different from dare I say a “barely surviving” club… and was willing to sacrifice pursuit of benefit for their own agenda, to serve the needs of others.
This embodies what the Sports Club Council believe to be the ultimate mark of good sportsmanship. Lending a hand to an opponent who cannot manage to pick themselves up and carry on.
