If elected, I wish to improve:
Awareness

  • Provide clarity over what Loughborough Sport currently offer so that students truly know what sport strands are available to them, whilst ensuring this offer is efficiently promoted through cross-sectional collaboration (i.e. through the utilisation of the existing Sport Senate).
  • Evolve sport sec training to ensure better support for hall committees when illustrating what Loughborough Sport offer to their hall members during freshers’ week.

Kit

  • Utilise the proposed LSU sports shop to provide better communication to members regarding kit distribution and designs.
  • Ensure the upcoming kit tender process is initiated earlier to prevent kit delays reoccurring for future students. My position as AU intern this year will ensure continuity with understanding and addressing current, and historical, kit issues.

Loughborough London Experience

  • Provide a competitive sporting offer within Loughborough London through the introduction to LUSL (a BUCS led league for London universities and campuses).
  • Create a London “All-Stars” programme to allow for more sporting interaction between both the London and the Loughborough campuses.

Finance

  • Demonstrate the breakdown of membership costs within the Athletic Union so that members are aware as to how their membership fees are distributed.
  • Centralise the alumni fund with LSU (rather than through the university) to ensure increased control over the financial stability of our clubs and the Athletic Union.
