Originally established over 30 years ago with a limited number of clubs, the Ithaca College Sport Club program has undergone a significant expansion since that time and currently consists of 38 clubs in the categories of competitive, instructional, performance and recreational sports.
Placed under the guidance of the Office of Recreational Sports in fall 2001, the sport club program is currently based out of the Ithaca College Fitness Center and continues to expand at a rapid rate as clubs are added as interest for them increases.
Voluntarily organized by students, sport clubs exist for the purpose of furthering a common interest in a physical activity through competition, instruction, participation, or performance. Students elect their own officers, draft their own constitution, request facility space, get approval for and make travel arrangements, schedule contests with other teams, develop contracts with officials and artists, fund raise and manage their budget.
About Women's Basketball
A relatively new club at Ithaca College, the women’s basketball team has recently finished its first full season of competitive play at the club sport level and continues to grow and improve with continually increasing support and interest in the program. Created with the goal of providing an alternative to intercollegiate competition, Ithaca Women’s Club Basketball allows the College’s female students the opportunity to meet new people from other institutions while continuing to play basketball at a competitive level in conjunction with their studies.
Open to all Ithaca College female students from freshman to graduate level, IWCB consists of 15 individuals competing each season. Tryouts are held shortly before the first game of the season, usually in late October or early November, with roster decisions being determined by coaches and club officers. A minimum of attendance at one practice per week is mandatory for participation.
The season consists of 10-15 contests played against peer institutions, primarily in the northeast, with play beginning in November and proceeding through March. Contests are officiated by qualified personnel and consist of two 20-minute halves. All home contests are played on campus at either the Ithaca College Fitness Center or Ben Light Gymnasium, and results are posted in the schedule and results section for Ithaca Women’s Basketball.
