Sport Clubs

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 Ground Up Crew

Originating in New York City in the 1970s, and gaining great fame in the 1980s, breakdancing is perhaps the most well known form of hip hop dance. It returned to the Ithaca College sport club program in 2006-07 as Breakdance became an official sport club. After several previous incarnations, Breakdance is a club committed to developing not only members' breakdancing skills but also their cultural knowledge.

Intended for both recreational and performance use, Breakdance is open to all members of the Ithaca College community that are interested in breakdancing. Whether an experienced breakdancer or an individual with no previous experience, but with a desire to learn, Breakdance encourages individuals to join and experience the club.
