University Sport for Health, Friendship, and Lifelong Learning
Sport is a source of joy, health and well-being to all humans – we were made to move! Everyone, including students, has the right to improve their quality of life through physical activity. University sport is not just for elite athletes: it’s for everyone!
The European University Sport Association (EUSA) provides students with different skills the opportunity to compete on an international level. The European Universities Championships and Games are inspiring events where students from all over Europe meet, compete in the spirit of sportsmanship and find friends and experiences that last for a lifetime. The Student Commission gives students the opportunity not only to compete but also take responsibility as organizers and volunteers in sport events.
The Student Commission connects student volunteers and young leaders and creates possibilities for them to network and share best practices. Coaching, organizing, volunteering and competing in university sports are important means of developing as a person and acquiring skills that are needed later on in the working life. These experiences should be academically recognized, also for elite athletes, who often obtain a higher education diploma during their sports career.
As most students face a financially difficult situation in their lives, universities should encourage the students to find an inspiring hobby in sport by arranging decent facilities and sports services to students on all levels. A healthy student is a successful student. A healthy lifestyle carries through working life and benefits the whole society!
The Student Commission is EUSA’s channel to approach students in member countries. Our goal is to have more competitors, more volunteers and more active students in university sport all over Europe. The Student Commission aims to have the European Universities Championships a well-known and appreciated concept of sport events for students. The Student Commission wants students and professionals working in the university sport field to find our events a useful environment to learn, develop and network.
The Student Commissions’ principles include equity between genders and generations, open decision-making processes, fair play, zero tolerance in the use of doping and genuine spirit of sportsmanship.
