Congratulations on becoming a member of the most successful student sport body in the country. As an AU member you become an exclusive few in the country who can put the African violet jersey on and represent Loughborough Student Sport.
Now you are an AU member your friends from other institutions instantly become jealous of your Kukri stash, your winning streaks, your 1st place trophies, your winners medal, your ability to train with Elite athletes on a daily basis, your ease of access to train and play on world class facilities and your chance to experience the best sporting experience in the UK.
Your journey with the AU has just begun and I cannot reiterate enough that you have to take every opportunity that your respective club throws at you. That being from fitness tests, 7am gym sessions to an away day at Stirling – these opportunities will shape and improve the person that you’ll eventually become. At Loughborough Athletic Union there’s an attitude like none other in the country – it’s the work hard and play hard attitude that has made us champions of BUCS for 35 years running.
Throughout the year, the AU Executive which compromises of Event Coordinators, Secretary, Web Media and Communications, Alumni Rep and Spectatorship Rep, will look to enhance the experience the AU provides. That being from the highly renowned AU Ball to The Big Match, we seek to make your time as an AU member the best it can be.
Lastly, enjoy your year because you’re going to love it. If you have any questions then please contact your Club Chair or contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org or even better, pop into the Student Sport Office upstairs in the Union.
Yours in Sport
Luke Thomson, VP Sport
