We appreciate sport can form a large part of life for many students, and we encourage all to get involved at a level that suits them.

The day to day running of the MSF falls under the remit of the Plymouth Marjon Sport Federation Executive Committee (which includes student representatives). The Committee is responsible for developing and implementing policies, as well as managing disciplinary issues should they occur.

What is BUCS?

BUCS is the national governing body for Higher Education (HE) sport in the UK, with a vision to enhance student experience through sport. They support the lifestyle and educational benefits to communities and individuals of taking part in sport and provide outstanding opportunities to all students to engage in sport and related activity in HE. BUCS fixtures are mainly played on a Wednesday, but some fixtures/competitions are on the weekend (team dependent). Fixtures are generally played against regional universities (competition dependent) 

You can see our fixtures on the Bucs Website.
