Development sports

Our development clubs aspire to be competing at the highest level within the BUCS framework and have the potential to do so.

The development clubs are those that are aspiring to compete at the highest level nationally and are knocking on the door to promotion to the top flight in BUCS and or winning National Championships.


  • We currently have 4 development sports: Cross Country and Athletics, Judo, Lacrosse and Volleyball.
  • These sports are those that have teams pushing for promotion into the top flight of competition within the BUCS framework.
  • Student athletes competing in these teams receive athlete support, including access to strength and conditioning sessions and will also have access to support services.
  • Access to high level coaching
