Tertiary sports

Represent Victoria University at an inter-tertiary sporting event that you excel at.

Represent Victoria University of Wellington in the University & Tertiary Sport New Zealand Championships and go head-to-head against other New Zealand universities and tertiary institutions.

Tournaments are held in 10 sports across the year and trials are open to all Victoria University of Wellington students. We aim to select our top sportspeople and have our strongest teams representing the University.

Points from each tournament accumulate toward an overall tally and champion institution each year.

There are costs associated with travelling and competing in these events. These are communicated to players as soon as possible once teams are selected.

For more information or if you’re interested in being involved either as a player or a coach/manager, contact baylee.mitchell@vuw.ac.nz

UTSNZ Student Athlete Commission

We are currently looking for a student athlete to be our 2019 Victoria University of Wellington representative on the UTSNZ Student Athlete Commission. This is a great leadership opportunity for someone looking to contribute in the sports field.

The UTSNZ Student Athlete Commission allows the voice of student athletes to be heard. It provides advice to the UTSNZ body about any issues, developments, and achievements within UTSNZ and representatives help to build awareness of sporting opportunities within their student communities.

Contact baylee.mitchell@vuw.ac.nz to find out more.
