Plus Icon AU Exec Updates

Semester 1

The first semester has been an exciting time for Leeds Beckett Athletic Union. Despite our marginal loss at Leeds Varsity, the University has picked up some impressive results over the first 3 months of the BUCS season with us sitting just outside the Top 10 in the country at the moment.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to welcome Jane Feenan to the Athletic Union Executive Team who fills the position of Vice President for Campaigns. As part of the Athletic Union Executive Committee it is our mission to try and improve student experience within Sport and Active Lifestyles. We therefore want to hear your views on how we can help improve student sport at Leeds Beckett. What things can we improve on? What things do we do well? Do you have any ideas that could help the clubs that you are part of? If you have any views you can email me at j.schofield7273@student.leedsbeckett.ac.uk or alternatively you can message the AU Exec Instagram Account where Megan, Jane or I will get back to you.

Thank You and good luck for all of your events in second semester – let’s push on and make the Top 10 this year!

Joshua Schofield
Leeds Beckett Athletic Union President
