Co-Op approves in-line hockey funds
The Board of Cooperative Activities (Co-Op) for the Student Government Association approved a request of $5,000 for the In-Line Hockey team payable from budgetary reserves Thursday.
The meeting was called to order at 12:31 p.m. at the Robert M. Smith Student Center.
Vice President of Financial Affairs, Abby Schon, explained, “As of now, your team is getting more money than any club sports team and we do not fund for far away games for other club sports, so we need to keep it consistent.”
Voting on the motions approval came with a few stipulations placed on the allotment.
“We don’t want to keep increasing it and increasing it. We want it to stay. We’re willing to approve this $5,000 but we need to put a cap on it,” Schon said.
The stipulations included that the base budget for the group for the 2014-2015 year will remain at $13,130.
Co-Op will consider funding one travel team and up to five travel teams if the base budget can support it. The travel teams should be self-supporting for any differentiation in costs as club sport transportation outside of the area is not funded by the Student Government Association.
Also the Board passed a motion to approve the athletic student insurance changes. “Their policy’s changing,” explained Schon, “In the end we aren’t spending any more money towards this.”
The meeting moved into executive session at 12:41 p.m. and was later adjourned by the board.
