Performance Clubs

The Performance Clubs Scheme is the support structure in place for the top clubs in the University of Sheffield. We concentrate on a small selection of clubs identified as ‘Performance Clubs’ that lead the way in club structure, on and off-field success, desire to succeed and forward thinking.

These clubs are selected against several strict criteria, in return they are benefited from the aid of an in depth support structure mirroring that of our Elite Sports Performance Scheme.

• Strength and Conditioning Support:
This support includes complimentary use of our dedicated strength and conditioning room with our fully qualified coaches. Each team will work with our coaches to develop a programme that fits their individual and sporting requirements. This will involve various aspects of sports performance enhancement and corrective exercise including functional movement analysis, appropriate testing along with periodized programming to fit around the season and University semesters.

• Physiotherapy Support:
The physiotherapy support for Performance Sport is quite broad with two sites on offer for our athletes. One of our sites is Wilkinson Street Physiotherapy near the Students Union, plus we have Active Rehab based in the Sport Sheffield building itself. Both offer a free initial consultation and a reduced student rate for each session thereafter. For more information on either of these practices click on the Performance Clubs Support page.
