Your college may also play competitive sport through structured leagues and tournaments governed by British Colleges Sport.
British Colleges Sport (BCS) aims to encourage and enable students and colleges within the Further Education sector to develop their potential by providing high quality sporting opportunities and services.
BCS organises regional competitions in over 15 different sports, many of which progress to national competitions. BCS also run national representative squads and teams in many sports and take part in international events and competitions. Many former BCS competitors have gone on to play full national representative sport, but the competitions also cater for those who simply want to take part and enjoy some activity.
As well as the National Championships held annually in the East Midlands at Loughborough University, national representative teams compete in football, women’s hockey and rugby, and national cup competitions in football, women’s hockey, rugby and mixed volleyball.
Over 250 colleges across England, Scotland and Wales are affiliated to BCS, under a regional structure, making BCS a major force in sport and active recreation in the country for students aged between 16 and 19 years. Contact your FESCo to find out more about competitive sport in your college.
