Hi <<First Name>>,

We hope you have enjoyed & made the most of welcome week, and are settling into term.  Here's your week 2 updates!

As club chairs/treasurers, this email contains additional information to that received by other committee members.

Content Warning

This email mentions sensitive topics regarding consent, active bystander training, and sports club culture.
Consent Awareness Training ✨

As you will be aware, the Union has released consent awareness and active bystander training for all CSP committee members. If you have not done so, please refer to the Student Activities & Development Newsletter for information on this.

A friendly reminder that the training on eActivites must be completed before 5pm on Friday 14th October or else your eActivities access will be revoked until done so. 

The Union has provided an opt-out form should you feel uncomfortable completing this training.  All information on this can be found in the newsletter.

Consent Training Documentation 📄
eActivities Quizzes ❔
The Union will be releasing a feedback form regarding this training later this week.  If you have any urgent queries regarding it, you can contact your sports vice chair, in confidence, or you can directly email Dylan - Deputy President Clubs & Societies (dpcs@ic.ac.uk) or Nathalie - Deputy President Welfare (dpwelfare@ic.ac.uk).

Chairs - Please ensure that all your members complete this by the deadline.  You can see who has completed the training on eActivities.
Sports Club Culture 🏅

As welcome week comes to a close and you begin running regular activities as a club, we would like to ask you to keep in mind how your club can stay inclusive and safe for all.

The Union has unfortunately had some issues during welcome week with clubs not acting respectfully and in an appropriate manner towards club members, staff, and the wider community/general public.  Whilst these incidents are infrequent and do not affect the majority of sports players, we always want to promote a positive and enjoyable sports experience for all and we hope you do to!

By no means are we asking that you don't have fun - social events are, and always will be, an enourmous part of being a sports player - but please remember to consider those around you.

Chairs - Ultimately, the responsibility to uphold your clubs values and standards lies with you!
IC Radio 📻
IC Radio are looking to work with sports clubs by broadcasting commentary of their games and competitions on air.  They are looking for clubs who wish to participate and for commentators to join their commentary team.  This is a great opportunity to promote your club and get your members involved in the wider community!  If you or your club would be interested, please get in contact with icradio@ic.ac.uk.
