The Kent Colleges Student Sports Association (KCSSA) was established in 1995 to plug the gap in the provision of competitive sports that exists between School to Six Form, Colleges of Further Education and Universities.
The Association’s aim is to provide enrichment opportunities for students aged 16 - 25yrs to take part in competitive sport on Wednesday afternoons for all FE Colleges and 6th forms in Kent. The KCSSA Membership is open to FE colleges and School 6th forms providing a high level of competition in 4 core sports: Football (Male), Basketball, Netball and Rugby (Mixed Touch, Male & Female).
Each year the association provide Grand Prix style league tournaments and annual cup competitions from October- March to encourage wider participation from young people taking part in sport. School 6th forms are encouraged to link with their local FE college where possible to form joint teams if the numbers participating are not sufficient to enter a full team.
The Association’s aim for the future, is continuous expansion of its membership and the development of regular competition and tournaments.
The sporting calendar for this season 2020/21 has been postponed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. This is being reviewed at regular online meetings of the association. Details of the next meeting is posted in the headlines section.
