Archie Robinson, Sports Officer 2022/2023    Officer Profile: ARCHIE ROBINSON  Course: Politics and International Relations      Hometown: The Wirral (Near Liverpool!)     How do your friends and family would best describe you?: Enthusiastic, passionate and having a drive to succeed.   What inspired you to become an Exec Officer?: Following being the Club Captain of Futsal for two years, I have been able to witness first-hand the barriers in place for people to partake in sport. This made me realise that there was room for positive change for sport at our University and I felt as though due to my experience I would be able to bring that forward! Sport has been my favourite thing at University and I want to make sure everyone else can share a similar experience!

 

What can you offer students in your role?: Enthusiasm! Having been involved in elite sport since the age of 16, I bring a wealth of passion and enthusiasm to the Sports Officer role! My belief is that sport should be one of the most inclusive sectors in the University, and by raising your concerns and promoting your voice as students, I believe we can work together to give everybody an opportunity in sport!        What is the most important change you want to make this year? Increasing the engagement in sport amongst all groups at university is a major part of my plan for the year. I will have a core focus on the promotion of inclusivity in the hope that a greater proportion of students feel as though they can be a part of the sporting family at the University by providing opportunities for all!      Hobbies and Interests: In my spare time I am a semi-pro futsal goalkeeper playing for Leicester! Albeit this takes up the majority of my evenings but I do love a pub quiz and I am a keen artist!
