UniSport Nationals

Want to compete against some of Australia's best student athletes? UniSport Nationals events are your chance to represent Team Charles Sturt in a range of sports.

If you're enrolled in a current session – either on-campus or online – at the time of the Nationals event, you're eligible to participate. You don't necessarily need to be an athlete, either. We're always looking for coaches and managers as well as competitors.

This is a SSAF funded initiative

Upcoming events

UniSport Australia have combined both Division 1 and 2 events. Those teams that competed in Div 1 in the previous year will remain in Div 1 unless they placed in the bottom two for their chosen sport, in that case they will be relegated to Div 2 for the following year.

All Div 2 teams will get a chance to be promoted to Div 1 during the week, however, UniSport is yet to confirm how this will be regulated.
