Fall 2020 COVID-19 Impacts on Club Sports

Update: Tuesday, September 1st
Due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and limited cohort of students who will be invited back to campus in the fall, MIT has made the very difficult decision to cancel all varsity and club sports competitions, events, and travel for the fall semester. On-campus practice options for club sports will be scaled down and modified to meet socially distance precautions. Many clubs will be offering virtual options and social activities.

The club sports program is open to the following categories:

Clubs may have additional restrictions. For instance, they may compete in leagues that are limited to undergraduates, or to a particular gender. Contact individual clubs for details.

COVID modification: because campus is de-densified for Fall 2020, in-person club sports participation will be limited to residents living on campus as well as graduate students approved to be on campus for academic purposes.

Varsity Athletes

Varsity athletes may not participate on a club team in the same sport.  This pertains to: Rowing, Tennis, Men’s Soccer, Men’s volleyball, Women’s Soccer and Women’s Volleyball.

Facility Access

All participants must have a valid MIT ID card printed by the MIT card office identifying their affiliation, and a current athletics membership. Membership is free for MIT students; other affiliates need to purchase a DAPER membership or day pass to enter the facility.  DAPER members that do not otherwise fall into one of the above categories are NOT eligible for club sports.

Health Insurance

All participants must also have health insurance meeting Massachusetts’ Minimum Creditable Coverage (MCC) standard. Medical coverage is a condition of enrollment at MIT, so all MIT students should already meet this requirement.
