Student sport can form a large part of life for many Marjon students. All students are encouraged to get involved, at a level that suits them. So whether you are looking to compete on a Wednesday afternoon in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competition www.bucs.org.uk, play in intramural competitions or are looking to get involved with the administration of a student club, volunteering or coaching the Marjon Sports Federation can help.
The day to day running of the Marjon Sports Federation falls under the remit of Marjon Sport; however the SF Executive Committee (which includes student representation) also has the opportunity to affect the governance of student sport at Marjon. The Student Sport Officer is responsible for the administration of BUCS and the development of student sport at Marjon.
