York Sport Committee Elections are set to open Monday of Week 3. The Committee is responsible for increasing participation in sport at York, protecting the interests of sporting members of the University and conducting sporting activities across the University.
A new position of Get Into Sport Officer has been introduced to promote sport for disabled and LGBT sports-players and the position of Volunteering and Development Officer has been reorganised to Wellbeing and Development.
YUSU Sport Union President Cass Brown told Vision: “Being on York Sport Committee is an extremely fun and rewarding experience.
“The Committee gets to make the important decisions that affect the York Sport Union and works closely with our 62 fabulous Sports Clubs.”
Treasurer, Events & Fundraising, Communications, three positions for Tournament Secretary, two positions for College Sport Officer, Wellbeing and Development and Get Into Sport Officers will all be open for nomination from Week 3.
Of the two new roles on the Committee, Brown told Vision exclusively, “I’m delighted that the York sport committee will be expanding this year. The new Wellbeing and Development Officer position has a great remit and will ensure that the Key Contacts scheme grows and gets the publicity it needs. The Get Into Sport Officer will drive the Get Into Sport programme, making sure participatory level sport thrives.”
Campaigning begins on Monday of Week 4 and results will be announced Monday Week 5. For more information on the specific role of each officer visit.
