Priority Levels for Adding Varsity Sports at Juniata

Priority Levels for Adding Varsity Sports


 

 Level I:           Highest Priority. Adding a sport at this level ensures movement in the direction of Gender Equity for the college and the athletic department. This sport would be highly competitive in the region and have the opportunity to compete for a conference championship and/or an NCAA Championship. This sport would draw recruits out of areas that mirror the current student population. Athletic facilities may or may not be currently available to handle all the needs of the sport. This sport would have a timeline for progression into Varsity Status. This sport may begin competing as a club and priorities would include recruiting students already on campus and recruiting student to attend Juniata to compete in this sport.

 

Level II:           High Priority. This sport would continue movement in the direction of Gender Equity for the institution. This sport would be competitive in the region. This sport may or may not be able to compete for a conference championship and NCAA Championship. This sport would draw recruits out of areas that mirror the current student population. This sport would be given a timeline for progression into Varsity Status.

 

Level III:          Medium Priority. This sport would not enhance or hurt our Gender Equity Compliance Status. This sport would be competitive in the region. This sport might not compete for a conference championship. This sport would draw recruits that mirror the current student population.

 

Level IV:          Low Priority. This sport would move us slightly further from Gender Equity but would coincide with an equivalent enhancement to the underrepresented sex. This sport would have regional competition that could fill a schedule to the minimum NCAA requirements, and may or may not be able to compete for a conference championship.

 

Level V:           No Priority. This sport would move us away from Gender Equity. Without a coinciding equivalent enhancement to the underrepresented sex, we may not choose to add this sport.
