Executive Committee

Meet your elected SU Sport Exec Team

The SU Sport Executive Committee is elected by all club members every year and supports the Officer to make all students' sport experience the best it can be. They are some of the most committed, hard-working and knowledgeable volunteers that The SU has!

Each Exec member has their own remit, from event support for thousands of people (like Snowball and Varsity), to recreational sport and performance strategy.

Thinking about running? Here's some things you should know! 

  • You get what you put in to any role, if you're committed to driving change and making your views heard - this is the committee for you!
  • Some exec members also hold other committee positions. This doesn't mean you have to, but it is possible!
  • Some members of exec have never been on a committee before, so don't let that put you off!
  • If you have any questions, speak to the Chair or the Sport Officer susport@bath.ac.uk
