It's easier than you think to establish a
Mountain Bike Club at your university. All you need to
do is be motivated enough to make a few phone calls.
Contact your university's Student Council or Clubs
Office and you’re more than halfway there.
The University of Toronto established its
club and race team in 2000, and since then it has grown to
over fifty riders. Whether you're from a large school
or a small one, we would love you to become a part of the
growing university-level racing scene in Ontario. In
2005, 22 universities and colleges from across the province
fielded teams to compete in the University Cup race series.
Many students represented their school unofficially;
why not become official by having your club recognized at
your home institution? If your school doesn’t yet have
a club here is how to start one:
Get in touch. There are several ways to
get in touch with your university's Clubs or Student Affairs
Office. You can:
- Go to the Student Council Clubs
Office during office hours. You can find its location
on your school's website or in your student handbook.
- Give your Student Council a
call. Again, the phone number is easily found in any
school's student handbook or through the main
- Send an e-mail. Sometimes
this is a fastest way to get answers.
If you have any questions about forming a
club feel free to contact us. We had to write up a
club constitution, which may be a requirement at your school
as well. You can read ours (above) as a guide, and if you
have any questions about it please contact David Wright.
If you want to find out more about clubs
at other schools you can find their contact information here.
