"Goes well above what's expected of him within the club"
‘ …….. has been our Club Captain this year, which is an honorary position, voted for by the members. In this role she has been approachable and encouraging to players of all abilities. Her previous position within the committee, as 2XI captain, was also very successful. Her team performed exceptionally well under her leadership. She will be greatly missed by the club’
‘Outstanding enthusiasm and motivation for getting new students into Sailing.’
‘……has been taken up a key role when organising our annual show. She is already on the way to raising a few hundred pounds for the meningitis Research Foundation, through the sales of tickets. …….organised the whole running order and has contacted many clubs and dancers to perform. Also as health and safety officer she is always at every dance class making sure everyone is safe.’
"….. as President of the Trampoline club this year has undertaken not only her role but the roles of many others for continued periods of time throughout the year, going significantly above the level required. She has also taken on and successfully introduced the aspect of GymFit to the university whilst also balancing a full time medical degree involving substantial placements and extensive work outside of the course. She has put in consistent performances in both the Southern Universities Trampoline League and in BUCs despite having to often singlehandedly drive over 6 hours. She has voluntarily completed a judging course passing with extremely high marks and without her and others completing these we would not be able to compete. She also gave up her time and training to coach voluntarily to a high standard for a period of the year when the club struggled with coaches due to illness. She has given a high level of personal support to a number of athletes this year, demonstrating confidentiality in the appropriate places but also referring to external support when necessary. The club and it’s athletes would have suffered greatly without her this year, and I believe she deserves recognition for the hard work she has put in, both this year and with regards to last year in her position as competition secretary."
‘The reason for this nomination is because ………. has made a massive commitment to the Tennis club this year, he arranges as many social events, charity events and club events. He is always around and an easy member of the committee to contact and talk to as he makes as many club appearances as he can to show what they club means to him. I have only known him for this year and it has been an honour he is very friendly and approachable and always trying to get new members for the club, he will always try and makes everyone at the club fit in well and have everyone playing their roles.’
‘Over the last year, the University of Plymouth Club A has increased its commitment to volunteering and raising money for charity. Club A have hosted charity tournaments, getting other sports clubs involved in ……, including a fancy dress inter-society tournament in December that raised £100 for East African Playgrounds. http://www.ClubA.com/?p=198 On multiple occasions, Club A have provided equipment and referees for tournaments ran by other university organisations, including two interhalls tournaments ran as part of the MGA with Joeseph Brearley. The Club A also assisted with the MGA’s Pride Sports Festival …….. tournament as part of Matt Dark’s ‘No Homophobia in Sport’ campaign.
