Some Sport Clubs operate with club members serving in traditional coaching roles, while others may have non-club members who help to design practice, personnel, and game strategies. It is considered the responsibility of sport club’s student leadership to secure coaching services if they so choose. There is no limit on the number of coaches a club can have on file with UREC, but all coaches who are not segregated fee-paying students at UWM and current club members are subject to background checks and approval by UREC. Clubs are responsible for covering all costs associated with background checks.
Aside from the mandatory background check, coaches must also complete all forms (3) in the SportClubsCoachesPacket and return it to the Intramural Sports & Sport Clubs Coordinator prior to attending any club sanctioned events (practices, games, travel, etc.). Coaches are also required to attend Coaches Training. Coaches Training will be scheduled with club officers, coaches and appropriate sport club coordinator/s. All Coaches must be approved in writing by the Sport Club’s President and approved by University Recreation annually.
