The 6th Man Club is enthusiastic students united with a mission to do whatever it takes to help Ryerson teams succeed. The 6th Man Program focuses on increasing attendance mainly from students living in residence. These students receive certain perks and privileges when they become a part of this club. A special fan section for this club will be provided at Ryerson university sports games.
The program is designed to allow residence communities to have the unique opportunity of attending Ryerson Varsity games for prizes.
6th Man Program will have a similar concept as the Loyalty Rewards Program, although the point system and the prizes will be different to distinguish the two programs. As well, the 6th Man Program is based on teams competing against each other, not individual members. Membership and special prizes will be strictly available for students living on Ryerson University Residence. Winners will be judged on both attendance per 100 members and 5-Star incentives gained by each 6th Man program team.
There will be (5) different teams; each team will have to sign in individually during the select varsity games. At the end of the year, sign-ins will be cross-referenced with the initial team roster. Thus, the team with the highest attendance per 100 members at their games combined with 5-Star incentives gained will be declared winner.

The 5-Star Point System is designed to promote support for Ryerson Athletics while building a new culture at Ryerson, of faithful and energetic fans. This system is based on rewarding fans for not only attending games but for supporting teams most in need; we do this by awarding 1-5 stars for attending particular Rams games. Star value is determined by our following 5-Star Game Appreciators:
Supporting a team with losing record – last year’s record if applicable.
There are (x) communities that will be competing against each other to achieve the highest attendance per 100 members at varsity games. As each team has a different number of members a total ratio number per 100 members will be used to scale the teams using the 5-Star System.
5-Star Attendance Formula
(members attended/ Total # of members)100 x Event star rating
Ex. Men’s Soccer Game - ***
Community 5 has 200 members with 150 of the members attending the soccer game. Therefore, their attendance rating would be calculated as follows:
(150 members attended/ 200 total members) x 100 = 75 per 100 members
Then, we multiply 75 by the “event star rating” which is (3) stars - ***
So community 5 will receive 150 stars; as an attendance rating for this event.
Also, the 5-Star system rewards 6th Man members that go the extra mile when attending games by giving an A+ effort while cheering on your Rams. Check out the Incentive Board for chances to earn more Star Points.

How do we make sure points from the Incentive Board are accumulated?
At every 6th Man event there will be 2-3 representatives at the entrance to swipe your card and mark down what extra incentive stars you have accomplished. When entering the facility and swiping your card make sure you have all your props, rams gear, etc. VISIBLE to make sure you are rewarded! For in-game incentives we will have a designated rep in the gym during competition to count for mid-game contestants, special cheers, etc.
How will Incentive Points be calculated?
Incentive points will be calculated just like attendance where stars will be distributed PER 100 members. (Check 5-Star Attendance Formula)
