Athletic Union Executive Committee

The Athletic Union Executive Committee is made up of four student members from the Student Sport Team and the Athletic Union President, who as a group meet on a regular basis to discuss and help shape the future of student sport at St Andrews. Their voices, opinions, and ideas are vital for furthering the student experience.

Each member of the Exec represents a specific area of student sport, whether that be sports development, media, finance, events, volunteering, wellbeing or inclusion. In doing so Saints Sport keeps student representation at the centre of the organisation.

How can I get involved?

Following a successful application, the new Student Sport Team will vote on who they would like to represent them on the Exec committee.
