AU Exec Area rep
There are 5 sports reps, each is responsible for a certain area: Coombe Dingle, Indoor, Outdoor, watersports & Martial Arts. They represent your sports group at AU Exec meetings and provide background information during discussion so it is important to keep them up to date with what is happening in your club.

AU Chair
The main queries include training, transport, insurance, funding & entries. However any other difficulties to do with sport or club running can be taken to the AU Chair by anyone on the committee.

Ideally own cars: the petrol can be reclaimed back at 20p for the first 50 miles and 16p for every mile thereafter. The Union reception has info on all the local buses whether to Filton for Athletics or Temple Meads there is a bus to cover all.

Train fares can also be reclaimed at the young persons rate and bus tickets. Failing that, then minibuses can be booked through the Union. TAXIs may not be claimed for without prior permission from the AU Chair in exceptional circumstances. For transport requests for fixtures, contact the AU Administrator [email protected]
