Club Excellence Programme: The Saints Stamp
Athletic Union sports clubs are central to delivering The Saints Experience to students at the University of St Andrews. In order to provide the best possible experience, it is vital that clubs are well run, sustainable, welcoming, inclusive and open to all.
The Saints Experience
“To create a special sporting environment providing the best possible support and opportunities, enabling everyone to realise their own goals, create their fondest memories, form their strongest friendships and have the best university experience because of their engagement with Saints Sport.“
The Saints Stamp is Saints Sport’s club excellence programme and is designed to:
- Recognise and reward clubs for good practice
- Support clubs across all areas of club development
- Ensure all clubs meet minimum criteria for affiliation to the Athletic Union (AU)
- Ensure members of all AU clubs enjoy the Saints Experience
Over the coming months Saints Sport will be holding a series of discussion forums to provide AU clubs with the opportunity to tell us what they think makes an excellent club across several key areas such as governance, coaching, experience, finance etc
Saints Sport will use this feedback to tailor the programme to best meet the needs of the AU clubs, their volunteers, coaches and members
The AU President will be in touch with more information in Semester 1.
