Introducing Merle

Hello everybody, my name is Merle and I am the current VP of Sport & Wellbeing of SAUWS and Sport President of Team UWS. I would like to welcome you to the University of the West of Scotland and to Team UWS.

University Sport has been one of the best experiences throughout my 3 years of studying at this University and my goal is to provide this experience to as many students as possible.

My main sport within this University has been cheerleading and over the past year I have been leading the club to winning the Scottish University Championships 2018. However, I have always been a person who has been interested in a variety of sports, I have supported our womens futsal team, trained with our Netball Club and played 3 years of handball.

As your current president I want to make sure that your University Sport Experience is as inspiring and exciting as mine was and still is.


Merle's Objectives

  • Over the next year I hope to work on the following:

  • More recruitment opportunities for our clubs - to ensure we do everything we can to make sure the student is at the heart of the Sports Union and for our clubs to engage with as many students as possible.

  • Team UWS Coaching Academy - allow the Sports Union to professionalize our recruitment and development of our coaches.

  • Development of the current committee structures - to ensure the Sports Union supports each and every student that dedicates their personal time to allow more students to take part in sport and to ensure a smooth running of their club.
