Events and programmes

We offer a range of sporting and non-sporting events and programmes, as well as health and wellbeing initiatives throughout the year. Keep an eye out for dates.


Our one-off events are a great mix of fun, competition and skill. Entries open a few weeks before each tournament—be sure to mark these dates in your diary and get the crew together for an action packed evening.

If you're looking to play sport on a regular basis, check out our sports leagues or clubs and societies to join a team.

Courses and programmes

We offer a range of one day courses, multi-day programmes and workshops.

Just Lose It

Our annual six week healthy lifestyle programme will help you make positive changes to your overall wellbeing. Participants team up with our fitness advisers, setting goals, working hard and having a lot of fun along the way with the aim of cementing healthy daily routines.

First aid

Our student first aid courses are delivered by St Johns and are NZQA approved—ideal for those needing a first aid qualification for their degree (this course is suitable for a teaching degree).

The course is completed in one day and has a discounted rate for Victoria students of $110.
