MEDFORD - The Tufts University Department of Athletics has hired Lance Greene as its new Assistant Director of Recreation & Club Sports.
In this position, Greene will oversee the department’s recreational offerings, club sports, intramurals, and physical education classes and mini-courses.
Greene joins the Jumbos from Endicott College, where he has served as the Club Sports Coordinator since 2017. A 2013 graduate of Endicott with a degree in sport management, Greene has two Master’s degrees as well. He received an MBA from Springfield College in 2014 and a Master’s in athletic administration from Endicott in 2017.
“We are very excited to have Lance join the Jumbos,” said Matt McMasters, chair of the hiring committee and Athletics Business Operations Manager. “Throughout the entire process, he impressed everyone with his passion and dedication for student life, club sports, and intramurals, as well as his experience working with students and student-athletes at Endicott. We are fortunate to have Lance lead our club sports, intramural, and recreation offerings and cannot wait for our students to have a chance to meet and work with him.”
In addition to being the point-person for administering all club sport programs and new club initiatives on the Endicott campus, Greene was also an assistant coach of the men’s varsity basketball program and held additional game operations and event management responsibilities. He was a Residence Director in Standish Hall on campus from 2015-17 as well.
“As the new Assistant Director of Recreation and Club Sports, I look forward to integrating myself and my past work experiences within the Tufts community while simultaneously learning, interacting, and collaborating with faculty, staff, and the students on campus,” Greene said. “For many reasons, I believe physical fitness and/or student involvement in extracurricular activities to be very important for personal growth. My goals are to support student development and engagement by providing various opportunities for all to discover and express their passions through athletics and recreational participation.”
At Tufts, Greene takes over a program which offers a variety of opportunities to anyone on campus interested in athletic activity. Within the liberal arts framework at Tufts, the Physical Education program offers students instruction in individual, dual and group activities that promote lifelong fitness and enjoyment. Tufts has 28 club sport teams and each plays a full competitive schedule while allowing both the true competitor and the recreational student-athlete to participate. The Tufts Intramural Program provides an outlet for fun competition with other Tufts students, staff, and faculty.
Greene will start in his new role on June 7.
