Rep Election 2018: Vote Now

Setting up your Team Trials

Most student-athletes first contact sports clubs at the Welcome Fair (29th&30th September 2018). However we know your trials may take place before this, so don’t leave organising until last minute.

Make sure that as a club you get your trials organised as soon as possible, this may be the responsibility of the President, or it may be delegated to captains.

Remember to:

  • Add events to the Whats On calendar
  • Plan plenty of sessions- don’t rush into selecting teams
  • Make your first session relaxed, fun and unintimidating (you will still be able to see competitive players, whilst not scaring off others)
  • Let people know what to expect, what they should wear or bring with them
  • let people know that everyone can participate at the welcome session
  • take photos, it’s a good opportunity to get good pictures of your club

If you need any help with arranging facilities or transport, contact Izzy (Sports Administrator) at isobel.ross.13@ucl.ac.uk. If you need help, the earlier you get in touch, the better.

Don’t forget, once A-level results day is here, prospective students will be looking at your club page and Facebook pages so make sure they are up to date!
