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 has grown to include 14 colleges and School 6th forms participating at a high level of competition in 4 core sports: Football (Male), Basketball, Netball and Rugby (Mixed Touch & Female).
Each year the association provide Grand Prix league tournaments and annual cup competitions organised from October- March to encourage wider participation from young people taking part in sport. School 6th forms are welcome to join the association and 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 next season will start on Wednesday 9th October with a Kick Off participation event held at a central venue in Kent. Leagues will commence from Wednesday 16th October 2019.
