Joining the Hiking Club for 2010 -2011!
Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a good holiday.
The committee are working hard to get everything ready for the coming year and the new walks program is now availiable through the walks tab above. For the club veterans who are returning this year we look forward to seeing you at fresher's fair, for those of you who have never joined us before here is a quick guide on how to join our hiking group...
- First you need to join the Athletic Union (AU), they oversee all sports at Swansea university and you cannot participate with any of the student sports clubs before you have joined them, this is beacuse they provide our insurance and also for other legal and financial reasons. To join the AU visist their website (www.suau.co.uk), click the 'join the AU' tab on the left of their site and then follow the 'new user' instructions to join the AU.
- After filling out the AU's forms you get a confirmation page, print this and take it to the AU stand in Dining room C in Fulton House where you will be given an AU card! This is your ticket to join more than 40 sports clubs!!
- Next come and find the HIKING CLUB stand!!! We can sign you up to the club there and then and you can book your place on one of our first walks.
We look forward to meeting you!
Not sure if hiking is for you? Our walks are of varying lengths from 6 to 14miles and guided by a committee member or competent walk leader, we won't rush you or force you to walk faster than you feel comfortable. We visit some awesome locations including local areas like the Gower peninsula and the Brecon beacons as well as longer trips to areas like Snowdonia and the Peak district. Checkout our photos in the gallery!
