BGSU Track  Club  Information   Runners  of  BGTC  abide  by  the  4  C’s:   Competitiveness,  Competition,  Comradery,  and   Community  

Bowling Green  State  University  offers  a  team  for  runners  to  come   together  and  compete  in  track  and  field  events  around  the  United   States.   The  Bowling  Green  Track  Club  is  a  group  of  men   and  women  who  compete  at  collegiate  level  track   meets.  Although  BGSU  has  dropped  the  Men's   Track  and  Field  program,  BGTC  was  created  to   give  men  and  women  the  opportunity  to  compete   at  NCAA  Division  I  track  meets,  without  having   the  pressure  of  maintaining  a  scholarship  status   at  the  university.    The  idea  of  the  track  club  was   to  make  a  team  that  felt  like  a  varsity   intercollegiate  athletic  sport.    BGTC  competes  at   many  DI,  DII,  and  DIII  schools,  as  a  varsity  team   would,  and  at  many  meets  gets  ranked  among  the   top  competition  in  the  nation.

Team Information   Team  Practices  

Schools We  Compete  With  

BGSU Track  Club  practices  Monday  through   Friday,  usually  starting  in  September  with   small  workouts,  then  working  up  to  our   indoor  season,  that  starts  in  December.     Practice  times  for  the  upcoming  2010  -­‐2011   season  will  be  announced  at  our  orientation   meeting  in  August.    Our  idea  for  student   athletes  are:  You  are  a  student  first,  athlete   second,  so  you  are  NOT  required  to  be  at   every  practice.    Many  athletes  have  classes   during  practices  times,  and  we  understand!     We  will  give  you  customized  workouts  that   you  can  compeplete  on  your  own  when  you   have  time.  

University of  Akron   Kent  State  University   Defiance  College   Florida  A&M  University   Cedarville  University   Eastern  Michigan   University  of  Findlay   University  of  Cincinatti   University  of  Detroit  Mercy   Baldwin  Wallace  College   Hillsdale  College   University  of  Toledo   *this  is  just  a  list  of  some  institutions,   the  team  may  compete  with  other   schools  not  listed  here  

Club Dues   As  most  sports  clubs  at  BGSU  have,  BGSU  Track  Club  has  club  dues.    We   keep  the  costs  down  because  we  know  that  you’re  a  college  student:   you’re  paying  for  an  education  that  costs  a  lot.    Club  dues  will  be   announced  at  the  orientation  meeting  in  August.    In  the  past,  dues  have   been  around  $30-­‐50  per  season,  so  if  you  only  want  to  run  outdoor   track,  you  only  have  to  pay  one  price.    Dues  help  pay  for  uniforms,   sports  equipment,  etc.
