How to Earn Points

  1. Post on your team's instagram story or page
  2. Tag @gvsuclubsports and any other accounts involved (main proof of involvement)
  3. Submission on Club Sport Cup Form (secondary proof of involvement)
  • Up to 500 points can be earned per submission
  • To earn points for any of the activities, a team must follow these steps
    • EXAMPLE: The Men’s Volleyball team has 10 team members attend the Men’s Lacrosse game. They would submit for points by taking a picture of the 10 members at the game and posting it on their story. They would then tag GVSU Club Sports and the Men’s Lacrosse accounts. Lastly, within 48 hours of the event, they would submit a summary of this event to the Club Sport Cup form. The Club Sport Department will then review these items and respond back with the amount of points earned.

All final point declarations are at the discretion of the club sports department.
