Preparing Athletes for Sporting Success (PASS)

PASS is designed to help full-time students who are training at a high level in their sport. This could be an individual sport, or a team sport that GC don't offer in the Academy programme.

We can help you with video analysis, special coaching, training programmes and even extensions on your assignments.

If you compete at County level or higher and you want to carry on, make sure you let us know when you apply, and you can benefit from PASS!

Heavy Throws Academy

Our Heavy Throws Academy on Gloucester Campus is for PASS students. Commonwealth Gold Medallist and Olympian Hammer Thrower, Lorraine Shaw, trains PASS students in shot, hammer and discus, once a week, working on fitness, speed and technique.

If you're a high level athlete interested in joining the Heavy Throws Academy, let Student Services know when you apply!
