US Travel Care Code
What Club Sports Programs Have Adopted the Code? East Carolina University and the University of Colorado at Boulder are the first club sports programs in the nation to adopt the Code and are currently developing their implementation plans. They are working directly with ECU's Center for Sustainability in the planning, implementation and measurement of the Code and its action items.
Why is Such a Code Important to Club Sports? There are about 1,075 club sports athletes at East Carolina University and 1,500 at the University of Colorado at Boulder; these are among the over 2 million such athletes across the country. These athletes travel to, as well as host, competitive events that require transportation, lodging and food service, and have a direct effect on the use of energy and water, the creation of waste, and on the social fabric of the host destination. The travel footprint for this amount of people is substantial and by implementing the Travel Care Code, this footprint can be dramatically reduced.
