We Are Bristol Clubs
These are the #WeAreBristol Performance, Parachute, Kick Start and Evolution sports clubs for the 2019/20 academic year. Working in partnership with Bristol SU, the new structure will allow us to provide more support to clubs and help them to plan, grow and develop for the future. Clubs receive professional coaching support and access to prime-time training slots across all our facilities. The support we provide helps to develop, lead and create a positive environment and maintain our Top 10 sporting university position within the BUCS league.

These are clubs that applied this year and we believe that with some investment, support and student drive, they could become a Performance Sport Club in the coming years.
These are clubs taking the first stepping stone to greater success. Be it their performance goals, membership growth or committee development, the clubs are supported to achieve their ambitions.

Since its formation in 2011, the Futsal Club has experienced substantial growth and success. The club currently has both a men's and a women's team competing at the highest level of university league Futsal. We secured Kick-Start status for the 2016-17 season. The extra funding and coaching support provided, amongst many other benefits, seemed essential to the continuing development of the Club. We look forward to working with the University to continue to progress and hopefully enjoy another successful season.
