Each team must have at least two safety officers on roster. For any practices, competitions or events held at a venue not supervised by Ritchie Center staff, at least two safety officers and/or coaches must be present.

Safety officers must have valid Adult & Pediatric CPR/First Aid/AED certifications and concussion training certifications on file with the Club Sports Office. Concussion certifications may be completed at no cost online.

Club Sports will reimburse certification registration fees up to $35 for any Club Sports member upon completion of all safety officer components. Any additional safety officer registration fees are the responsibility of the team.

Please contact the Club Sports staff at to receive information on CPR/First Aid/AED courses for Club Sports members at the Ritchie Center.


For most Club Sports teams, travel is an integral part of their club experience. Clubs must contact and get approval from the Club Sports office before planning any Club Sports-related team or individual travel.

Travel must be approved before your team leaves campus. If your team is interested in international travel, please contact the Student Programs Manager at least nine months before your desired departure date.

Travel Request Forms

Travel requests must be submitted at least two weeks before an event and must be submitted anytime a team/organization leaves campus. Teams must also attend the travel meeting on Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. in the week of their travel.

All drivers must sign the Driver Information Form to be eligible to drive a personal vehicle. Each driver on Club Sport trips must possess a valid state driver’s license for his/her vehicle’s class.

Any clubs driving rental vehicles must have all drivers complete DU Risk Management’s Driver Safety Course and MVR Check.

Club Sports places restrictions on when personal vehicles may be used based on location and time of year. View the Club Sports Manual for exact dates and location specifications.

The form is valid for the academic year, and the member may change their mind at any time.
