After celebrating 100 years in 2020, UWA Sports Council moves into its next century with the 2021 Council.
Providing opportunity for student representatives to be a valued voice within the UWA sporting community, the council comprises students from 30 UWA-affiliated clubs.
After serving as secretary for two years, UWA Athletics Katherine Sparrow is the 2021 Sports Council President.
The President supports Sports Council representatives in their roles and acts as a voice for the student opinion to UWA Sport and to other University bodies.
“This year we aim to roll out volunteer recognition for Sports Council representatives, as well as look into expanding the initiative to include other student club volunteers,” said Katherine.
“I am also looking forward to re-engaging with clubs and students after a difficult year, to collaborate on ways to increase student engagement and growth.”
UWA Rugby representative Tom Cavanagh will succeed Katherine in the role of secretary.
With two years as President, Max Qua will remain on the Sports Council executive in the role of treasurer.
The following UWA students will represent their club on Sports Council throughout 2021.
