Our pursuit of excellence in performance sport is underpinned by our belief in its educational value for our students. University sport teaches life lessons in self-reliance, accountability, diligence and self-confidence, all of which are required for success in later life.

To triumph as a student athlete, you require dedication, discipline, leadership, integrity and passion. These features are not just brought to the pitch, court and river but they are the key attributes that employers in the work place are so keen to see.

To this end, our objective is to provide a seamless programme where students can excel both academically and athletically whilst developing as a rounded young adult well placed to perform at the highest level, be that athletically or in any other chosen career path.

TASS athletes supported by Durham University can expect to access on-site:

• Personalised strength and conditioning programmes
• Onsite physiotherapy support from our partners, the North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust
• Nutritional guidance and personalised programmes where required
• Lifestyle mentoring designed to support you as an athlete, a student and as a young adult
• Nutritional guidance and personalised programmes where required
