About the Teams and Trials

We have two teams for both men and women: Blues Women (BW) and Blues Men (BM) - the first teams, and United Cambridge Colleges Women (UCCW) and United Cambridge Colleges Mens (UCCM) - the second teams.

This year we are holding pre-selected tryouts, meaning that we will invite players based on the answers we receive in this questionnaire. Captains of both teams, as well as the coaches, will be present throughout and observing all candidates.

If by any chance you don't get invited to try out for one of our teams, please don't get discouraged! There will be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved with the club this year, including development trainings coached by our experienced players, as well as mixed tournaments which will be open to all.

Practice schedule:

BW: Mondays 8 - 10 pm, Saturdays 6 - 8 pm and every other Friday 7 - 8:30 am

BM: Monday 6 - 8 pm, Saturday 4 - 6 pm, and every other Friday 7 - 9 am

UCCW: Tuesdays 4 - 6 pm or 6 - 8 pm (alternating) and Saturdays 4 - 6 pm

UCCM: Tuesday 4 - 6 pm or 6 - 8 pm (alternating) and Saturday 4 - 6 pm


All players are also encouraged to join Strength and Conditioning sessions on Fridays at 6:30 - 8 pm.

Who is CUVC for?

CUVC welcomes players of a great range of experience level to try out for one of our four competitive teams, or to join us for our Beginners' Sessions and College Cuppers competition!

Try outs are normally held in the first weeks of October, with information being posted shortly before the event. Show up to trials and play your best - if you are selected, you will soon hear from the relevant captain for more information on how to prepare for the season. 

To join CUVC, members of our teams also need to pay a membership fee at the start of the year, which covers coached hall training sessions, training hall booking prices, coached strength and conditioning sessions and some team travel expenses.
