University is the perfect time to find new hobbies, meet new people and learn new skills. Uni sports teams are the perfect way to do all those things and make the most of your uni experience.
Here’s five reasons you should join one of the University sports teams.
You don’t have to be sporty
You might not be sporty, but a sports team will still be happy to have you on the team and teach you. It’s not all about your athletic ability, and you can join a social sport group if you don’t feel comfortable playing on a team.
You’ll meet new people
You might not have met any of the people you become friends with if you don’t join the sports team. They will become your friends and team mates and grow relationships over socials and competition.
You’ll feel part of the uni
There’s something special about representing your university at games and events. Being at uni can make you feel like just a person in a big crowd, but getting involved in a team will give the chance to feel more of an individual and a special part of the university.
Good for mental health
Keeping your mental and physical health well is really important for uni, so the team practices and games will improve your mental health and give you the chance to focus on something else for a while.
You’ll gain more skills than you think
When it comes to getting a job, an employer will see a lot from you being on a sports team. It shows teamwork, time management and dedication. Use this to the max and you’ll be able to stand out in a job application later on.
