tass-newlogo-rgbBournemouth University (BU) is proud and passionate to continue to support the development of athletes along their chosen sporting career whilst maintaining a very strong work ethic towards their academic career.

The partnership with TASS has enabled the Team at Bournemouth to create a personal supportive program with all the athletes to ensure the wellbeing is the main factor to any discussion or program engagement. We help students with any transitions that may occur and give advice and support to combine the academic & sporting landscapes so that you can continue maintaining success in both.

We have a strong track record of developing athletes and you can expect the following support from our team:

  • Strength & conditioning program and support (Dan Boer)
