It’s been a really strange couple of months for everyone. Like most people, our events that were planned for the end of last year were cancelled, and coronavirus is continuing to present new challenges to everyone. Whilst there is still a lot of uncertainty, we are excited to get back to the pool and show everyone the best society UCL has to offer!
Meet the 2020-2021 Committee: Despite the challenges of navigating a world with coronavirus, the new committee is already hard at work behind the scenes, planning the year ahead. They are:
- President: Augustus Gutulan
- Vice President: Eloi De Clercq
- Treasurer: Annie Flint Smith
- Marketing and Kit Officer: Maya Kirlew
- Competitive Captains: John Telensky and Caterina Vanelli-Coralli
- Fitness Captains: Ellie Fish and Karen Kwok
- Social secs: Pepe Weischer and Sara Guttmann
- Welfare Officer: Arun Nithianantharajah
- Community Outreach Officer: Anna Spentzou
What will training look like next year?
We’re not quite sure how many training sessions we’ll be able to provide this year, due to the current situation but we are working hard to secure some pool time that allows us to put on COVID-safe training sessions🏊♀️.
What we know for sure is that we will have land (and hopefully pool) sessions run by our qualified committee members, suitable for everyone regardless of ability! At the moment, these will be both online and face-to-face, but this may change depending on any new rules and regulations put in place by the UK Government.
We will still be running socials, however there will be an extra emphasis on remote socials, so that we can accommodate everyone! Keep your eyes peeled for icebreakers, games nights and pub quizzes 🙂
