Pay Dues
 Link to pay dues here. Note that you can pay by cash or check if you would like to avoid fees – please contact the treasurer, president, or VP.
Sign up for the team through Do Sports Easy (not applicable for friend-of-the-team status).
Club Sports registration can be found here: Do Sports Easy. Complete all the online forms on this website and the three PDF health forms at the end (video walkthrough available here).

Do Sports Easy will direct you to fill out some medical information via a service called Presagia. Only a small subset of this information is required, namely fields with an asterisk and photo proof of your health insurance. You can follow along with this helpful slide deck, which will help you fill out the fields you need to while skipping those which are safe to ignore.

Follow these steps.

Complete the Driver Form  (not applicable for friend-of-the-team status).
The Driver Form can be found here. Even if you don’t plan on driving your teammates around, if you have a driver’s license, please complete this step. Return this form directly to Risk Management and to the Treasurer.
Sign our non-disclosure agreement.
If you have a SUNet ID, use our online NDA; if you don’t, use the Paper NDA and return to the treasurer, president, or VP.

We have an official team member-only Slack channel where you will get access to our coaching info, sponsor discounts, etc. You can only get an invite to this list once you have done all 4 tasks above.
