IUSCA Opens European Headquarters at Leeds Beckett University

The International Universities Strength and Conditioning Association (IUSCA) is thrilled to announce the opening of its European Headquarters at Leeds Beckett University's Carnegie School of Sport. This partnership enhances the student experience and offers world-class teaching and research facilities. Leeds Beckett’s strength and conditioning degree programs will now benefit from IUSCA's gold standard accreditation, and students will gain opportunities for placements at prestigious universities such as UCLA and CSUN.

Andrew Langford, Director of IUSCA, highlighted the mutual benefits of this collaboration: "We get a home in a world-class teaching and research facility, and its talented staff and students get access to an unparalleled network of expertise across the globe. We look for partners who share our commitment to excellence and collaboration to make a positive impact on sports performance and injury reduction."

Pete Mackreth, Dean of the Carnegie School of Sport, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership: "We are delighted to welcome IUSCA to our University. This collaboration will undoubtedly enhance the student experience and help us to further develop our world-class teaching and research in sport."

Sarah Whitehead, Course Director for Strength and Conditioning, added: "This partnership provides our students with unique opportunities to engage with industry-leading professionals and gain practical experience that will be invaluable in their future careers."

This partnership also provides IUSCA a base for its European offices and outreach efforts. The collaboration will facilitate hosting the IUSCA Annual Conference and other in-person events, fostering a vibrant community of sports performance professionals. The first UK conference will be held on August 24, focusing on the impact and future direction of technology in sports performance.
