I'm Ryan, & I'm excited to announce that I am re-running for a second term as your President for Sport & Wellbeing. During my 4 years as a Sport Science student I captained the volleyball team and led them to a league & cup double win. I was also the president and committed to inclusion in our sport within the University.

I have a passion for sport & want it to be accessible to all students regardless of their ability. Exercise is important for everyone’s physical and mental wellbeing; I believe we need to be inclusive and open.  Having a disability, sport has been so important for me, & it has greatly enhanced my experience of life.

During my first term:

  • Sports Ball ticket price decreased by 20% to support students during the cost of living
  • Biggest Varsity ever with 12 teams participating
  • Introduced an ENSA Mascot, chosen by students
  • Re-introduced Club of the week, to showcase our sports clubs
  • Collaborated with clubs to raise over £6000 for Movember
  • Successful wellbeing campaigns - Feel Fab Feb, Movember
  • Advocated for outdoor sports facilities, which is now a priority

There is more to be done:

  • Source funding to support outdoor clubs using external facilities
  • Persist in pushing the university to invest in and build outdoor sports facilities
  • Sustain and expand successful wellbeing campaigns, amplifying the impact of Movember and Feel Fab Feb
  • Improve committee trainings/ handovers so new committee are more prepared for their upcoming role
  • Make Varsity bigger and better than ever before
