Promotion of sport events across campus with match times and location using social media, website and digital screens. This will encourage more wins for the Reading teams as crowd support is a great motivator! Additionally, it allows Reading students to feel a part of the BUCs Wednesday and the Knights identity without having to participate in the sport itself. This initiative achieves the aims through sports calendars, highlight reels and social media posts. The Good Lad Initiative workshops also sit under support sport as they promote better behaviour amongst are clubs which in turn will reduce negative stereotypes associated with sports and encourage a more cohesive campus between all students.
||In talks with Good Lad Initiative about their rebrand, and how we’re going to develop these workshops at RUSU after fantastic feedback from last year.
||Arranged a meeting with Director of Sport to see if Sports Calendars can go up in Sports Park!
||Sports calendars up on RUSU digital boards. Logistics of sports highlights reel completed with filming taken from matches every Wednesday to be edited and ready for the following Wednesday, shown from 2-6pm in Mojos in conjunction with the Match Day Mojos initiative. Additionally, RUSU and the University arranged Good Lad Initiative workshops for sports club committees as a trial run with potential to make these widespread next year, dependant on feedback. We had good feedback.
||Liaise with Welfare and Diversity officer regarding Good Lad Initiative, what the content would be and how the workshops would run. Booked in workshop sessions with 9 sports committees, taking in consideration match and training times!
||Liaised with RUSU Marketing and Venue about using the digital boards around RUSU with weekly updates of home match times and locations.
