Sydney University Sport and Fitness (SUSF) plays an important role in supporting the Growthbuilt Sydney University Australian National Football Club (SUANFC) and 46 other sporting clubs.
SUANFC is recognised as one of the ‘big 4’, and in 2016 SUSF provided 35 scholarships to student athletes within SUANFC.
The SUSF mission is: To be the leading provider for university-based sport, fitness and recreation services in the Asia-Pacific region.
The University of Sydney has a long and prestigious history of sport, witnessing many changes in the athletic world. SUSF has produced more Australian representatives and won more major competitions than any other club. Consequently it continues to be an influential body in the sporting domain.
On January 1, 2003, the Sydney University Sports Union (1890) and the Sydney University Women’s Sports Association (1910) amalgamated and created this country’s premier tertiary sporting body. Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness manages and administers 47 sport and recreation clubs, organises sporting and recreation events and offers a comprehensive range of sporting facilities to students and the wider Sydney community.
A strategic partnership between the NSW Institute of Sport (NSWIS) and the university has succeeded in attracting, encouraging and assisting elite athletes with their academic pursuits.
