The University of Cambridge Athlete Performance Programme (UCAPP) has been established to offer high performance athletes at undergraduate or postgraduate level the opportunity of a professional and coordinated support services network in order to improve their performance as a sports athlete. This programme has been set up thanks to the kind generosity of Mark Hanson (Girton 1985) who was a Modern Pentathlete during his time at Cambridge.
This programme aims to provide core services that any high performance athlete would benefit from including: lifestyle management, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, nutritional advice, sports psychology support and gym membership.
Any athlete selected for national level teams or training squads (including individual events/competitions) will be eligible to apply for this fantastic programme.
