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!
The Vet Riding Team is separate from the main university's team, but you may compete with both. We compete on Dick Day and the International Riding Team Competition hosted by Edinburgh University. We enter two teams with four riders each for Dick Day, and one team with three to four riders during IRTC.
We hold trainings up until Dick Day! Times and days of training may vary, so check the Facebook group for details! Players are also welcome to join the Main University Women's or Men's teams that train on Tuesday and Thursdays 7-8.30pm.
Note for men: mixed lacrosse uses womens sticks and womens' rules.
Hi everyone, welcome (or welcome back) to UofG. If you love playing netball or have no idea what it is and just want to get involved in a club, come say hello at Fresher’s Fayre and follow us on Facebook/Instagram for more information. We look forward to meeting you!
VET DANCE CREW - BVM$
BVM$ Crew is the Glasgow vet dance crew founded in 2016. Specialising in street styles such as hip hop, breakin’, poppin’ and lyrical, we offer training development and performance opportunities for vet students from all levels. We've performed at the Trusty Paws Christmas Ceilidh as well as Rodeo 2017 and plan on continuing to perform at different vet school events. If you're keen, join us!
Come and join the best club around for some great chat and great hockey ! Everyone is welcome so come along and give it a try ! We do training weekly and try to incorporate intramural matches throughout the years with Medics Dentists and Law, as well as having some incredible socials from Pre's for vet events, to Potluck dinners and post training nights out. Vet Hockey is THE best way to meet new people throughout vet school and create the best memories of your life!
VET MEN'S FOOTBALL
Glasgow University Veterinary School Football Club (Men's). We play in an inter-faculty league, and our biggest game is against Edinburgh Dick Vets on Dick Day each year in November. Vets and Biovets - catch us at Freshers Fayre in September! All are welcome!
VET WOMEN'S FOOTBALL
Hi we are vet women’s football! We are a fun club that accepts all players and levels! We practice once a week and play a game against the Dick vets. We also have plenty of socials throughout the year- a great way for freshers to get to know upperclassmen.
VETS WEIGHTLIFTING CLUB
A group of enthusiastic veterinary students united by their love of picking up heavy objects and putting them down again. In regular times, we run a weightlifting room full of heavy objects (near the lockers), students coach each-other and coaches have the perk of getting free membership and some pay for their efforts. If you want to get involved, or even become one of our coaches, please get in contact!
WOMEN'S VET RUGBY CLUB
All vet students welcome - whether you're a complete beginner or experienced we would love to have you! We usually have sessions twice a week from the first week of term until Dick Day. We try to organise lots of friendly challenge games for those who are interested and of course plenty of socials!
