WHAT WE DO
WitsSport administers sport and sporting facilities at Wits University. We work closely with the student-elected Wits Sports Council (WSC) to deliver sports programmes to students, staff and alumni, and to offer sport lovers at Wits a vibrant sporting culture. We provide the university community with opportunities to participate in a range of sports codes at the level they choose, while contributing to enhancing Wits' sporting prowess. We work to encourage the entire Wits community to see health, fitness and being physically active as a way of life.
Wits University offers students some of the finest and most diverse sports facilities in the country and all registered members are invited to make use of these marvellous amenities.
BURSARIES & STUDENT-ATHLETE ACADEMIC SUPPORT
WitsSport administers several bursaries for students with demonstrable sporting prowess that is backed up by satisfactory academic results. There is also an academic support programme in place for student-athletes. If you're a sports achiever who has shown excellence, Wits is the place to be! Application forms obtainable from your sports officer, or e-mail a request to Kerry.Yates, (tel 011-717 9441). See the Bursaries page for details of successful 2014 applications.
WitsSport's Conference Venues has facilities such as function halls that can be hired out by departments, students, staff at the University as well as clients and organisations operating in the private sector.

ONLINE SPORTS CLUB REGISTRATION IN 2015
In 2015 registering for a sports club at Wits will form part of the new, integrated online registration sytem (from Jan) that gives new and returning students the option of registering off-site for their courses, for res, parking etc. If you're not able to register for your sports club/s online you'll still be able to do so in-person during the on-campus registration period.
WitsSport will help guide you through the sports club registration process. Check back here in early Jan 2015 to see a presentation that will walk you through the process.
