The first team squad support structures are designed to give help to and support to talented LSAC athletes below scholarship award level on their development pathway through their University years.
The programme affords recipients levels of physiotherapy and sports massage cover , reduced Powerbase Gym Membership and access into Coach led Sports Science support programmes (including Nutrition, Psychology, Exercise Physiology testing and Performance Analysis) amongst its benefits.
It is aimed at athletes who can contribute significantly to the clubs status as the pre-eminent British University athletics programme, targeting both continued BUCS success and also selection for International age group and senior teams.
Inclusion in the programme is based chiefly around annually reviewed performance standards, though others outside of these standards may be considered if they are in the best one or two within the club in a particular event and can contribute meaningfully to the student programme in BUCS.
