Sport Club Roadmap Page

Texas State provided a website to know and show respect for our fellow Bobcats as we arrive on campus: Roadmap. This is the university’s plan to help keep our community safe and help our students advance toward achieving their goals. The website covers policies and procedures that guide everyday situations on and around campus. We will follow the university’s direction for sport club participation, including the policies outlined on this page.

Collegiate competition and Travel are authorized as of August 9.

Per Texas State University guidelines, sport club teams and members are permitted to travel and compete in collegiate competition for the fall semester. If there is a change in status, we will notify clubs and update this page.

Club Meetings

Club meetings are recommended to take place via Microsoft Teams or Zoom. However, clubs can meet in person. We recommend students wear masks indoors and be physically distanced as appropriate.

Meetings with Sport Club Office

We can meet in person or via Teams as needed at this time. Face coverings are recommended indoors.


From August 23 and until further notice, clubs may resume practices as normal. Clubs are to review your league's or national governing body's best practices in how club practices are to be held. Please note that:

  • Face Coverings are encouraged indoors regardless of vaccination status and outdoors in close quarters with people. Per the University directive on May 19, Face Coverings are not required.
  • If practicing off-campus, must follow facility guidelines.

Attendance Logs

All Sport Clubs will be required to submit an attendance log for each practice and event. All attendance logs will be submitted remotely via Microsoft Teams. On-campus club practices will receive assistance from Sport Club staff to assist with attendance.  Off-campus club practice attendance must be kept by the club and submitted within 24 hours.  This will allow for compliance with proper contact tracing policies and procedures.

Health, Wellness and Safety

Considering rising infection rates and recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, Texas State is requesting all members of the university community to take these five additional steps:  

  1. Get tested. Regardless of vaccination status, get tested before the start of the fall semester and when selected to participate in Texas State’s random COVID-19 testing program. Testing information can be found on the Texas State’s COVID-19 Testing, Reporting, and Response Steps webpage.  
  2. Stay home and get tested if you develop cold-like or other COVID-19 symptomsregardless of vaccination status. 
  3. Promptly Report to Bobcat Trace if you test positive for COVID-19 or have had close contact with someone who received a positive test result. Reporting information can be found on the Texas State’s COVID-19 Testing, Reporting, and Response Steps webpage.
  4. Isolate if you test positive for COVID-19. Stay home and away from others for 10 days from the start of symptoms or the positive test if you have no symptoms.
  5. Quarantine if you have been identified as a close contact and stay home for the prescribed time period.
  • Fully vaccinated Bobcats who are asymptomatic are not required to quarantine but should get tested for COVID-19 three to five days after last exposure. They should also wear a face mask when indoors in public spaces for 14 days since the exposure or until a negative test result is obtained three to five days after exposure.
  • Unvaccinated Bobcats are required to quarantine for 10 days since the time of last exposure.

Daily Self-Assessment

All students and employees must monitor their own health on a daily basis. Check your temperature daily and self-assess for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to coming to a Texas State campus. Stay at home and call your healthcare provider or the Student Health Center at 512-245-2161 for evaluation and testing for possible symptoms of COVID-19.

Delta variant symptoms often include:

  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Runny nose/sinus congestion
  • Fever (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher)

Other COVID-19 symptoms may include:

  • Muscle or body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Chills
  • Vomiting or diarrhea

What to do next

  • If you answered NO to all: Report to class, work or university activities and comply with all relevant guidelines on-campus
  • If you have COVID-19 symptoms: Stay at home and contact your healthcare provider or the Student Health Center at 512-245-2161 to arrange for a medical evaluation and COVID-19 testing.

Face Covering

Face masks have proven very effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19 on our campus. 

  • Per standing guidance from Governor Abbott’s Executive Order No. GA-36 issued on May 18, 2021, and confirmed by The Texas State University System Office of General Counsel, Texas State is not able to require face coverings. 
  • We strongly urge that everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, wear face coverings indoors.

Face coverings are not necessary outdoors but are urged for unvaccinated persons in crowded settings.
