Sydney University are one game away from a grand final berth in the Sydney Women’s Hockey Metropolitan 1 League competition.
On March 23, Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF) closed its doors as the NSW Government enforced major lockdowns on all non-essential services in response to COVID-19. The facilities were a ghost town, competitions and programs either ceased or had to adapt and clubs were no longer able to train. The word ‘unprecedented’ gets thrown around a lot, but it truly was something SUSF and the world had never seen.
They always receive praise and accolades for what they achieve on the sporting field, but the Elite Athlete Program’s talented student-athletes should also get the credit they deserve for what they accomplish off it.
Nothing compares to Eastern Ave on Welcome Week.
Hundreds of stalls promoting different clubs and societies, food trucks, live entertainment, exciting sporting demonstrations from the Varsity Cheerleading Squad to the freebies available almost anywhere you look. Plainly put, it’s a pretty exciting time on campus.
Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness (SUSF) is delighted to announce the appointment of Ed Smith as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
A perpetually named sporting scholarship will be awarded for the first time in 2021, in honour of the late Professor Gavin Brown, who passed away in 2010.
Of the 340+ sporting scholarships offered in 2020, 39 are particularly sentimental. These perpetual named scholarships are established by individuals and organisations who have kindly donated in the spirit of providing a lasting legacy. These gifts are especially appreciated in uncertain times, such as what we’re experiencing now with the COVID-19 pandemic. Four perpetual named scholarships are awarded for the first time this year to four outstanding student athletes in honour of some wonderful Sydney University sporting community members.
Each year, the outstanding academic performers of our Elite Athlete Program from the previous year are recognised through the award of several special scholarships. These are the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarships and the Senate Scholarships. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold our annual Sports Awards Dinner in which these student athletes would have been celebrated. So, in lieu of the Dinner, please read on to learn more about our top-performing academic athletes in 2019.
The Sports Awards is a special event in the Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness calendar where we acknowledge our new scholarship recipients and generous donors, celebrate our clubs, athletes and administrators and come together as a community in the name a shared love: sport. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019 event was unfortuntely cancelled, however in the absence of a celebratory evening together, we are proud to still announce our award winners online.
