Club sports showcased at student organization fair

Cleveland State hosted its biannual Student Organizations Fair in the Student Center Aug. 30 and 31. Groups set up tables in the atrium and on the second floor of the Student Center, hoping to raise awareness and attract new members.

Among these groups was the Women’s Basketball Club. In just its second year, it is one of the 18 sport clubs now recognized on campus.

Shelby Zoeckler, the club’s president, explained that the club has only one team, so the club is usually made up of around 10 to 12 people. This often depends on how many people show up for tryouts. All Cleveland State students enrolled in at least one credit hour are eligible to join any club sport on campus.

“We had a good amount of people show interest between the Org Fair, Magnus Fest and Rock the Rec,” Zoeckler said. “It was around 20 to 30 people.”

She did note, however, that the club was not sure how many signees would come to tryouts.

Improving leadership skills is at the core of sport clubs, so each is led by students, with assistance from Campus Recreation Services. They also try to foster teamwork and competition without the pressures of athletic teams.

“I believe that people should look into joining club basketball, because we are a talented group of girls who all love the game,” Zoeckler said. “Every girl on the team works hard to compete to the best of our abilities.”
