York Sport Committee


The York Sport Committee is a group of student volunteers who have a strong interest and passion for sport at York.

The committee is chaired by the current York Sport President and meet on a weekly basis to discuss all York Sport Union matters, events and projects.

As well as tasks associated with each individual role, the committee work together to organise major events throughout the year, such as: College Varsity, Colours Ball, Equal Opportunities workshops and Roses to ensure they are a huge success. The committee are also responsible for deciding on the allocation of contingency grant to clubs, voting on new legislation and giving their opinions on various upcoming sport-related projects, such as the new sports hall in the York Sport Centre.
