The Sports Club Council (SCC) is a subsidiary of Associated Students and consists of 11 sports clubs – cheer, disc golf, equestrian, lacrosse, mixed martial arts, otter dance, men’s rugby, women’s rugby, sailing, volleyball, and water polo. Our sports clubs compete regularly against other colleges throughout the year both on and off campus.
In serving as the director of the Sports Club Council (SCC), Dustin Johnson is responsible (along with his SCC Board) for overseeing the funding and campus-wide programs of the different sports clubs. Dustin also serves on the AS Executive Board, AS Internal Affairs Board and AS Finance Board.
SCC, along with ICC, hosts the Otter Showcase (campus student organization fair) twice a year. SCC is also heavily involved in the oversight of risk management and safety protocols for their members that require specialized training throughout the fall and spring semesters, as well.
Sports clubs are essential to the Otter experience since many students that are at CSUMB come from some type of high school athletic or sports program or are students that never got to play sports before, and they now have an opportunity to become part of a team.
Since SCC is considered as “clubs,” some of their sports teams do compete with other club teams statewide, regionally and nationally much like an athletics program – yet others clubs are more recreational, allowing for a fun learning and competitive experience in the sport that students are interested in.
Several upcoming SCC events include a men’s rugby game in San Francisco on Nov. 9, disc golf has a tournament at the disc golf courses on campus on Nov. 10-11, and more to come as the year goes on!
