National Championships

Exclusive to AoC Sport member colleges, the AoC Sport National Championships are a celebration of competitive sport in colleges, providing recognition, enjoyment and a unique opportunity for students to compete.

They also remain the largest annual student sporting event in the UK, with nearly 1,800 college students taking part last year.

AoC Sport member colleges qualify to represent their region at the Championships through regional tournaments, hosted throughout the autumn term.

As well as competing in their chosen sport, students compete for points for their region. The region whose teams and individuals accumulate the most points wins the prestigious Wilkinson Sword trophy.
