Performance Sport

at the University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham offers high quality coaching and performance support to our leading teams and athletes to maximise achievement and development.


Our leading teams and athletes are supported by the Performance Sport programme, which offers expert coaching, training and development from a multi-disciplinary team of performance support practitioners. These combine to maximise athletic performance and achievement in national leagues, as well as BUCS competitions and championships.


Our coaches deliver all technical training on site from our state-of-the-art facilities. Students are supported by our team of dedicated practitioners at the multi-million-pound Sport and Fitness centre, opened in 2017. The Performance Centre, located on the second floor, is a UK-leading centre for higher education sports science.
