03 /Perform at the Highest Level for Team Northumbria
Team Northumbria is the name of Northumbria Sport's high performance sport programme, which has many teams competing in BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) - the premier sporting competition for students across the UK - across many sports, as well as other national leagues and competitions.
Trials run in September and more information about how to get involved will be in the last slide in the Sport section.
In our High Performance Programme we develop student athletes at every level by delivering world class coaching, support services and financial assistance. We have passionate coaches and amazing facilities that allow us to get the very best out of our athletes.
Stan Calvert and BUCS
The Stan Calvert Memorial Cup is a varsity played between Northumbria and Newcastle University involving all of the sports they both compete in. It's always a fantastic event, with a finale that last year had over 700 students turn up to show their support (which you can see in the image above).
The BUCS league is where all of the points we gain from the sports get added up and we compete against all of the other universities in the UK.
We've won the Stan Calvert Memorial Cup for the last 4 years in a row and we're ranked 8th out of more than 170 other UK universities in the BUCS league.
