In addition to the IPP, we also manage a corresponding Team Performance Programme (TPP) to assist University’s leading sports clubs, including swimming, hockey, rowing, football, orienteering, fencing, archery and rugby.
In most cases, our TPP is headed by dedicated performance coaches, with specialist conditioning, medical and advisory back-up. This is designed to allow University of Edinburgh teams to compete at the highest level in national leagues, as well as British Universities and Scottish Universities championships.
For more information and/or follow-up questions please contact Performance Sport Manager, Claire Cruikshank.
