BUCS Endorsed

BUCS Endorsed is a scheme which provides opportunities for members to participate in sporting events which BUCS have agreed with an external organising body, such as British Rowing. This agreement guarantees each event is organised in a competent manner.

The aim of BUCS Endorsed events is to encourage participation within the sport. Endorsed events cannot offer BUCS points, medals or trophies, but do provide a platform for further experience in a competitive environment ahead of BUCS events.

BUCS are looking for university rowing clubs who are interested in organising an event which could be endorsed by BUCS. In order to be endorsed these events must be led by students within a university rowing club and will provide members with a chance to learn and develop skills in event management and sports administration. Additionally, a university rowing club may also use the opportunity to host an endorsed event as a potential fundraiser.

Each host rowing club is mentored by a member of staff from British Rowing. The mentor provides assistance to ensure the event is delivered safely and run with the support of qualified officials. Interested university rowing clubs should contact the Project Officer for Competitions at British Rowing for more information.
