For Oakland University Club Sports, this year is one filled with changes. For the first time in the history of the Club Sport Department, we have designated supervisors at each of the club’s on campus home events.
These supervisors perform very important duties for the University. These supervisors keep club sport members safe and in times of injury, attend to their needs. The supervisors have mini med-kits to help any participant get immediate medical attention for minor injuries. If the situation is extreme, the supervisor will aid for as much as they can given their level of medical knowledge and contact emergency professionals if requested.
The Club Sport Supervisors also help make sure that all the rules of the University are followed and that the code of conduct for the facilities are also followed during home games for club sports. Not only do they make sure that clubs, and their fans, are not being destructive towards the facilities or leaving behind trash, but they do so much more.
