Campus Recreation Update
updated: Friday, August 7
All campus recreation facilities are currently closed. The access for Bellomy Field and Degheric Tennis Center has been removed from ACCESS cards. On June 5, the order changed to allow for swimming pools to be open but ours will remain closed at this time. Indoor facilities within the county are currently required to be closed as of July 15, 2020.
For the fall based on guidelines by the County and/or State we hope to have some of our outdoor facilities open - at this time we believe we may be able to open the pool, Bellomy Field & Track. September 1, we hope to have a better idea and timeline for the facilities that may be open this fall.
Stay at Home Options during Facility Closures & Remote Learning:
We have posted some FREE stay at home workout options on a new webpage to help keep you active while our facilities are closed. Please click here to see those suggestions.
For Fall 2020 continue to visit the Stay at Home webpage for FREE fitness options at home. In addition, look for reminders from the Health and Wellbeing Implementation Team on how to stay physically active this fall from where you are taking classes. We hope to bring you some fun ways to move each day.
In an effort to do our part to reduce the possible spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Intramural Sports Program offerings went virtual for the spring quarter. We had 27 participants for season one, and 18 for season two. Please see the IM Virtual Webpage for more information. For the fall, we will continue to provide Virtual Leagues. Please check back the 1st week of the fall quarter to see our offerings.
As of Thursday, March 12, all Club Sports competitions, including championship events, and formal and organized practices were canceled until further notice. The cancellation of competitions applied to all Santa Clara University Club Sport teams, regardless of their national governing body affiliation. On September 1 an update will be posted with plans for fall.
Alumni with membership to the facility - when we return to campus we will be extending all of your memberships for the dates closed, based on what you had left for your membership. For example, a monthly member, that was to expire April 12. Will have the dates between March 17 - April 12 added to their membership - not the length of the closure. For all membership questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have specific questions please contact Janice DeMonsi, Director of Recreation, email@example.com.
Stay at Home but Stay Active
We have created a webpage with many free options (and we will keep updating as we find and learn of more) for you to stay active at home during the stay at home order in California by the governor. On this page you will find:
Stay at home workouts (various fitness platforms that have many workout options - equipment, no equipment)
Outdoor ideas (hikes in the area, our NEW run, walk, roll virtual event)
Dryland exercises for our swimmers
Sports & Recreation (tips for some sport drills & brain games)
Please check out the page of ideas by clicking here. If you have any more FREE options to add please share and we will keep the list growing.
Club Sports Spring Cum. GPA's
We are so proud of the 461 student-athletes for Club Sports they recorded the highest cumulative GPA of a 3.382 after the spring quarter. We have 2 students with a 4.0, 63 students between 3.8 - 3.99, and 131 student-athletes with 3.5 - 3.8. We are proud of all 17 club sports for being over a 3.0 average cumulative GPA. Good Job Broncos!
