VET SCHOOL SPORTS TEAMS

We take our sports almost as seriously as we take our socials . . . we mean studies! If you want to build up friendships and create a unique relationship with people in your year and upper years, joining a sports team is one definite way to do that regardless of experience! We strongly encourage you at Glasgow to have a healthy balance of studying, exercising, and socializing!

Our biggest sports day is Dick Day which takes place every November. Glasgow Vets take on the Edinburgh 'Dick' Vets in brutal head to head battles in each individual sport to win the bragging rights for a year of being Dick Day champions!

Come out to the Freshers Fayre to meet some team and club members and get information on trainings. If you missed out on Freshers Fayre, no worries! You can join any team during any training session, just show up and check out the Facebook group for training times and places!
