How to Start a Club
How to Start a New Club
Step One: Decide on the type of club you want to start
Social/ Entertainment: A means for students with similar interests to gather together and explore those interests
Humanitarian/Awareness: Provide some type of community service or host events in order to help others.
Educational: Usually associated with a school-based curriculum and often includes competitions or conferences.
Athletic Competitive Clubs: Requires a coach/moderator to oversee practices, competitions, and other events as mediated by the school.
Step Two: Finding a Moderator
Your moderator needs to be a Faculty/Staff member of Mater Dei High School. When you approach a moderator, please direct them to the “Moderator Information” page of the application so that he/she can be aware of the requirements before agreeing to take on the club. Once you have a moderator, you are ready to begin the application process.
Step Three: Application Process
With your moderator, fill out the application and submit to the Associate Activities Director. Applications open August 14 and all paperwork is due to the Activities Office by 3:00 August 23.
Step Four: Administration Approval
You will receive an email from the Associate Activities Director regarding your club’s application. If approved, you will receive information for club fair. Note: No club can begin meeting until receiving the email from the Associate Activities Director.
