The University’s leading sports clubs form part of the Team Performance Programme.
10 of our performance sport teams are 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.
All of our performance sports have designated sport-specific support that includes access to the University’s top class training and competition facilities and services, such as:
Supervised strength and conditioning support, year round, including exclusive use of the Performance Gym
Prevention and treatment of injury from FASIC Sports Injuries Clinic
The University of Edinburgh’s Endurance Running Academy was set up in partnership with Scottish Athletics to provide a performance programme for athletes competing in middle & long distance track, cross country, road, and mountain running.
