I agree, we would love to collaborate with NIRSA.
Can someone clarify the "No events" in the Fall- Crew? Lacrosse? Volleyball? -- is that a conference thing or an individual school thing?
00:49:46Max, Swarthmore College
For NGBs, I just wanted to make sure you’re aware of this link: https://www.chronicle.com/article/Here-s-a-List-of-Colleges-/248626?utm_source=Iterable&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=campaign_1190312&cid=at&source=ams&sourceId=4901435&fbclid=IwAR1HDzE3SnnaKWGOuy2RelxxovWB2qCpQQkmkoigMrs_Q03PV8FYM2PIlFo
00:49:58Sarah Hawkins (she/her/hers)
Nick - those were the responses from the National level - those are sports that may have tournaments in the Fall but don’t host national events in the Fall
I do believe that the biggest obstacle this fall might be TRAVEL restrictions to go to other univesities to play. If they don't allow teams to travel, that is going to put a huge damper on things.
is anyone else considering an 'all or nothing' model for club sport practices? we're on the fence about telling indoor sports yes/no, and telling outdoor sports something different.
00:57:30Samantha Wary (CWU)
Our indoor spaces may be spoken for with the use of academic classes or Group X type classes. We may have to split indoor or outdoor.
we are looking at contact vs non-contact status. indoors are going to be a challenge as we may losing gym space...
we are looking at each club individually depending on risk and the NGB
sorry, microphone isn't working!
00:57:56Max Miller, Swarthmore College
Let me find the USA Rugby module and I’ll share it in here
currently looking at diving clubs into individual focused sports (racket sports, equestrian, etc.) and team sports (basketball, lacrosse, rugby)
00:59:09Max Miller, Swarthmore College
Link to rugby module: https://playerwelfare.worldrugby.org/covid-19-courses
At Oregon State, we are looking at each club separately as well and seeing what modifications can be made to meet State, University, and NGB guidelines
We are apart of the Athletic Department and we are modeling off of them. We will have MAJOR pushback if we are playing D1 football, but not club hockey
01:00:53Samantha Wary (CWU)
We are doing the same by trying to mirror Athletics even though we do not fall under them.
isn't mirroring after athletics a challenge considering they have much more ability to test and screen athletes than a sport club program?
01:01:35Max Miller, Swarthmore College
Travel is already suspended for Swarthmore College through 12/31/2020
01:01:55Matt Dunigan (UCR)
That could be a possibly for us too Max here at UC Riverside
@Jon very much so
01:02:11Kathryn Hutchings - Santa Clara University
Samantha - I think this is the same for Santa Clara. Our Intercollegiate Athletics Program has submitted a 20 page proposal to Risk Management. I will likely be held to similar standards and will follow similar protocols.
Mr. Rios! Good to see you on my friend
Good to see you as well!
we are potentially using an assessment tool our university uses for faculty and staff to enter campus that covers questions to rule out exposure to COVID as well as potential symptoms. Then when they get to practice our workers would be taking temperatures (infrared thermometers) and jotting them down, turning away students with a temp over xyz temp. Not set in stone yet but similar to our athletic department.
@Greg I honestly believe that's what it will be, because no contests practicing only is when clubs were "disappearing" anyway pre-covid. I am waiting on a student decision from TAMU first then assessing the rest of my decision making of that and its impact.
student travel decision*
01:04:06Kathryn Hutchings - Santa Clara University
I wish I could share more, but I have not been given any info on what Intercollegiate Athletics submitted as of yet. Right now, Club Sports are simply "suspended until further notice"
@ Jacob we have an app that covers the same thing. A checklist of symptoms. We will require all participants to download the app and fill out before practices.
01:05:25Sarah Hawkins (she/her/hers)
Phillip - what app is that?
We report to Athletics and I have been included in all planning meetings for Athletics hoping that Club Sports will get mentioned during the meetings soon. However will the amount of testing that varsity teams plan to do and have the budget to spend $ on it, I just don't see us being treated the same way as we are self-funded
Subject to change obviously, but that’s what it looks like for club participants and members coming to the rec center
Is anyone using Livesafe for entrance into rec centers?
We are considering Healthy Roster
We will be at Saint Marys College of CA
01:07:15Crystal Durham - NAU
from what I've heard NAU is planning to use an app called COVID Watch https://www.covid-watch.org/
I second @ greg durham
We are not sponsoring them as our budget is frozen until we are told we can spend again (which could be mid September early October) they understand it is on their own.
Are other universities having ACHA hockey teams start practices or trying to start a season?
@jon high point will not start until the first week of September. I have been told we cant do tryouts or practices until two weeks after students return to campus.
We are looking at a hybrid fall semester. Among our options for on-campus housing is only allowing one bed per room. This would give us a capacity of 2,500 students living on campus to limit the amount of traffic on campus. Is any other college looking at this possibility also? Regarding sport club practices, would you only allow those students living on campus to participate or are you allowing students who live at home or off-campus to participate as well?

01:14:33Matt Dunigan (UCR)
@jason - great insight....side note: mustache game STRONG!!!!
@Shawn SMC is doing similiar things based off CDC, State, Local, and institutional guidelines. As of now, it looks like the number is 12 (California). So they will have to have modified practices based on that number, as well as being on modified facilities (outdoors) based on zones.
For those universities who are not allowing clubs to travel at all, are you allowing clubs who practice off campus to participate?
01:17:41Matt Dunigan (UCR)
@Matt Kutz - negative
@phillip thank you!
01:18:28Matt Dunigan (UCR)
Same here Shawn.
@Kutz - That will fall into my all or nothing bucket.

anyone have ideas for how they may handle any Fall "RecStravaganza" which can't be held in your building but provides clubs a chance to meet interested members? We're looking at a virtual option but wanted to see if anyone has mapped out a plan yet
we are looking at advertising a zoom for each club so students can connect that way...
01:21:06Matt Dunigan (UCR)
@Broska - we have toyed with the idea of having students sign up to regulate how many people are coming through the doors as well as virtual
01:21:07Crystal Durham - NAU
@Jon we are planning our Rec the Night event to be outside on our field space where we can try to spread everyone out since they canceled the event where our Sport Clubs traditionally recruit
@Broska - We're doing a virtual org fair. We're considering a Tinder-like app, that students can 'swipe' on orgs they're interested in.
01:21:30Crystal Durham - NAU
lol Greg I love that idea
We are also looking at doing a virtual org fair at Richmond
01:21:49Samantha Wary (CWU)
We created a virtual orientation video to share and post to replace the in person. It provides a general overview of all areas within recreation. We will also be posting this on our website to have available year round moving forward
01:21:49Max Miller, Swarthmore College
Greg, what’s that app?
01:21:59Kathryn Hutchings - Santa Clara University
zoom for club fair or if in person - if allowed - possibly use our field to space out, social distance, and comply with CDC guidelines,
@ Broska our clubs are making "commercials" to advertise themselves and then they will be shown at multiple locations and events around campus
I don't know the name of the app - it does connect to Engage if you campus uses it. If you message me with your email, i can forward the communication igot
noting how fears for outdoor events seemed to be diminished, i'm curious if people will move to an outdoor event in a larger field space instead of a virtual one
01:23:40Colton Scott- University of Illinois
@ Illinois we are also having clubs put together “commercials” to help recruit and get their club out there. We will help share their commercial through the campus recreation facebook page.
01:23:46David Wiley - Xavier
I collected testimonial videos from all of our clubs to provide incoming freshmen a chance to hear what the club experience has been from a current member prospective
How are you monitoring travel both on and off campus? Are you only concerned about the teams or each athlete- I mean sometimes I think as Admins, we are forgetting that these are college students. They are going to be living together, classes together, eating together, partying together, etc - lets face the facts, college campuses are not inclusive to "social distancting"... I think we need to be advocates for our clubs and do everything in our power to allow them to practice and play as safely as possible. Of course making sure you can meet University, State, Federal guidelines

Thank you for joining us everyone!
This was a great roundtable. Great to hear what everyone is doing. Best of luck moving forward.
This was very helpful! Thank you for hosting!
I'm using NFHS/State Association guidelines, their resources often mirror some of my rec programs better than my friends in Athletics. :)
01:27:36Mary Kimball - US Quidditch
Thank you for hosting! This was really helpful.
Lots of great information all around. Definitely helps with ideas and implementation. Thanks for the roundtable!
