What is it?
The Sports Committee is a new initiative developed by our VP Activities to better facilitate the operational, financial and developmental support that the Union offers to its Sports Clubs and recreational sports program.
The committee is made up of the VP Activities and 8 appointed members selected by the previous committee based on their ability to represent the different areas that make up sport at Lancaster University.
The Committee shall meet regularly throughout the academic year at a rate set by the chair – to be able to efficiently deal with business in a timely manner.
How does this affect me?
Roses- The sports committee will also act as the Roses Committee for the same academic year, giving steer to the schedule of fixtures, new initiatives and approval of new events.
Funding- The committee will have overview of funding made to sports club by the union and be given the opportunity to allocate funds where they become available.
New Sports Clubs- The committee will also decide which new groups will be approved as affiliated Sport Lancaster clubs.
Feedback and Ideas- The members will present feedback and suggestions for change from students and sports team members to the rest of the board.
Opportunity for Valuable Experience- As a member of the Committee you will garner the wealth and experience of working in a professional organisation; financial planning and budgeting, operational planning and event delivery and evaluating and communicating your success.
How do I become a member?
The Committee will be appointed by the outgoing members on an application basis. Vacancies will be published and application forms made available on the the students' union website during the appropriate times.
We welcome applications from any student currently or previously involved with any strand of sport within the university with the aim of adequately representing the varied and diverse range of activity we currently support.
