Every year, many of our students represent Leeds Trinity in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) and various other competitions. These student clubs and teams are all led by student committees supported by our Students’ Union.
Our clubs train weekly on campus with our BUCS teams competing against other universities on Wednesdays in term time.
There are also several opportunities to compete in BUCS as an individual athlete supported by the Students’ Union. These include; swimming, cycling, athletics and more.
To join a club a student can sign up at Freshers Fair in week one of term or they can join a club via the Students’ Union website.
