High Performance Programme

Team UCL High Performance Programme is based within the Students Union on 15 Gordon St, we have a clear objective to become the best university for sport in London within the next 3 years. This objective is backed by the student’s unions 2018-2021 strategy ‘125 and beyond’. To achieve this accolade the union have invested in performance support including strength and conditioning, physiotherapy and facilities to improve our BUCS ranking and competition performance.

We want our best athletes to reach their performance potential and maximise the success of Team UCL. Teams can apply to receive additional support to compete at the highest level of student sport within BUCS and national sporting competitions. Teams will be supported by professional coaching and sport development staff and have priority access to university facilities and services.

There are a number of pre-requisites for your first team to be considered in the high performance program for example;

  • League placing needs to be at a high level (e.g. Prem, Div 1)
