Representative Sport off Campus

The Eastern University Games are held in the July holidays. Whether you are a University or TAFE student, you can represent Ourimbah Campus at the Games. Contact Campus Central early in Semester 1 to let us know your prefered sport. Team managers are required for each team attending the games. If we do not have enough students to form a team in your sport, you still have an opportunity to attend by trying out for a team through the Callaghan campus.

The Australian University Games are held in the September-October holidays. If you would like to participate please contact the SWAG Officer,
