University Games and Championships

For many years, SCU has been a member and proudly participated in Australian University Sport. The Games are recognised as a perfect opportunity for university athletes to compete against each other in regional and national multi-sport events. The games have built up a reputation as a not-to-be-missed event.

Uni Games events provide a great opportunity to meet other uni students from both SCU and all over Australia. Off the sporting field, the Games offer an action-packed social program that is run to compliment the sporting activities. The social program includes events such as theme nights and dress-up competitions as well as novelty events and competitions that enhance the event experience for participants.
