Sport and Social Clubs
At AECC University College we are very big on health and well being, so it's only natural that we have a number of sport teams which represent us at different local and national championships. From Rugby to Football and Netball, we encourage students to take part in a team they enjoy and that would benefit both their physical and mental health. We also have a number of societies on offer. If you are interested in something that we don't currently have, why not start a club yourself?
AECC University College Sports Teams
These are just some of our sports teams here at AECC University College. From the start of this academic year all our teams were equipped with new sports kits provided by our Official Sportswear Providers, Viper 10.
Football Club, Men
AECC University College has an 11-aside football team playing BUCS – Men´s College and University football. The team was created in 2007 and has been very successful since. AECC FC is composed of football players from different countries and is a high levelled team.
The team train 2-3 times a week and play games on Wednesdays. Social events are very important for the team, so they have an exclusive social-representative who plans and prepares different social events during the season. As a tradition, the team meets up for a drink in the college bar (Togglers Arms) after games to vote who was the Man of the Match.
Our AECC University College Ladies' Football club was very successful last year as they scored 109 goals and won the league. The team usually trains on Sundays and/or Wednesdays, depending if they have a game that day. They train both indoor at the gym and outdoor in King's Park so as to make sessions fun, easy and exciting as possible.
Training can fit any level so anyone who is passionate and motivated is welcome try out for the team. It's a great opportunity to see more of the country, have fun, get fit, make friends and be part of a successful team.
Our Ladies' Netball team at AECC University College is rather 'young' in its trails but the girls are very excited and enthusiastic to take over their part of the sports world. Regular training is held either at the Sports Centre or at the gym on campus.
Training days are usually on Mondays or Tuesdays but are flexible as student life can be quite busy. BUCS matches are on Wednesday afternoons and are played either in Bournemouth or at the opponents, playing courts. If this sounds appealing to you and you're excited to proudly show off your AECC netball sports kit, why why not try out for a position on the team.
Here is a list of some of out most popular social clubs at AECC University College. The LGBTQ+ is the newest member of our club but we are always open to new ideas, so if you have a suggestion for a new club, please do contact our Students' Union.
