Performance Sport & Coaching
The Carnegie name has been synonymous with top quality physical education and performance sport for 75 years. At Leeds Met, we are constantly striving to take our sport to the next level, whether that is competing within the BUSA structure or within national competitions and leagues.
The Leeds Carnegie family of performance sport embraces a number of sports and is looking to continually expand to support talented students and athletes throughout the region and the North of England.
Leeds Carnegie now has both men's and women's teams playing very successfully in England Basketball's national leagues, which both teams competing at the highest level within the respective National League Division 1. The experience developed by exposure to this level of competition has had a positive effect on BUCS competitions with both teams becoming strong contenders at the university level.
National League Volleyball is also a strength for Carnegie, with Mens and Womens teams competing in the National Leagues. Strong recruitment to these programmes will hopefully pay dividends performance at this level and has proved successful with both Mens and Womens team winning BUCS and EVA Student cup and championships in 2009
