Running Trans-Inclusive Sports Clubs at Warwick

What will the workshop cover?

The workshop will:

  • briefly introduce the basics of trans identities,

  • look in more depth at trans experiences of sport and clubs, including the Warwick context,

  • explore practical steps you can take to achieve trans-inclusive practices in your club,

  • provide an opportunity for questions.

When and where is the workshop taking place?

The workshop is on Tuesday 21st November from 5pm for 1 hour in Social Sciences S0.21.

There is no need to register in advance.

Please contact the facilitator if you have any accessibility requirements that you wish us to be aware of.

Who is the workshop for?

If you're involved in running a sports club at Warwick (or hope to be in the future) this session is for you.

It is suitable for all exec roles, but presidents, captains, social secs, and welfare officers may find the workshop particularly valuable.

Where can I find out more?

The Queering University programme offers a wide range of activities and resources relating to LGBTQUIA+ awareness and inclusion.

Why is the workshop taking place?

The workshop has been organised by the SU's VP for Sports, Emma Birch.

The University and Students' Union are jointly committed to developing, implementing and supporting trans-inclusive practices, breaking down barriers for trans people (and more generally, everyone) to access sport at Warwick.

Who is running the workshop?

The workshop will be facilitated by Sam Parr, the staff lead for the Queering University programme and trans sport initiative at Warwick.

Sam (he/him) can be contacted via in advance of/following the workshop if you have any questions or requests.

What if I can't attend?

New trans-inclusive sports club guidance will be available in early 2024.

In the meantime, try to ensure at least one member of your exec is able to attend the workshop, and contact Sam Parr (facilitator) or Emma Birch (SU Sports Officer) with any questions or support requests.
