SCCC/ATS Considers Adding Sports

KSCB News - October 6, 2010 12:00 am

Seward County Community College Area Technical school is

considering the addition of several activities. Here is the

college’s press release from Monday’s SCCC/ATS Board of

Trustees Meeting.

“In the area of Student Activities, the college is still considering the

addition of soccer, golf and debate. The board reviewed a plan for the

addition of soccer, including a timeline, number of athletes, numbers,

revenue, expenses, travel and additional personnel.

USD 480 and the city are more than willing to work with the college on the

use of their soccer fields, said Galen McSpadden, SCCC/ATS athletic

director, ??but if the college is going to be competitive on the same level

as our other athletic teams, we need to have our own field. We would need

either two fields, including one for practice, or one artificial turf field

for both practice and games.??

Presently in the Jayhawk Conference, there are seven women??s teams in the

west and six in the east and five men??s teams in the west and seven in the

east.

McSpadden said that it is important to find a coach who would be place a

high importance on academics as well as created a competitive team. The

college would need to hire the coaches at least a year in advance of the

program and to get on the schedules of other colleges.”
