Theme: Achieving Excellence in HE Sport and Physical Activity

With the overall BUCS mission of delivering the best university sport experience in the world, this year’s BUCS Conference explored what a world class HE sport and physical activity system looks like, and how excellence is achieved.

With the BUCS strategy covering a pathway from physical activity and health through to performance sport, how can we ensure that programmes are targeted and tailored to the relevant audience, achieving excellence at all stages and levels of engagement? The BUCS Conference explored all these areas, looking to demonstrate what excellence looks like in these fields and how it can be achieved.

Taking into account the competitive nature of the HE sector, Conference delivery additionally explored how an institution can achieve excellence not only to make the case for HE sport internally, but to lead the way in comparison to others in the domestic and/or international university and sporting landscape.

Conference content heard from key stakeholders and partners from across the sport and business world. The focus was on how they achieve excellence on the national and international stage through the programmes and products that they deliver.

Delegates were challenged to consider how their institution can evolve for the better. What more can be done? What else can be delivered? Who needs to contribute as we strive for excellence? Can other sectors demonstrate to us what true excellence looks like? What does BUCS as a collective need to do to ensure that UK university sport leads the way in the delivery of excellence?

This year’s BUCS conference challenged delegates to assess the management and delivery of sport and physical activity at their institution, to evaluate and enhance their programmes whilst exploring new avenues and opportunities that may add to the overall experience in the individual and collective pursuit of excellence.
