Here at CCCU, we have 31 sports societies, which guarantees at least one that you’ll enjoy! Here’s nine reasons why you should join at least one of them.
They’re inclusive and anyone can join
Sports societies welcome anyone and everyone as there will always be people at the same level as you. They will welcome you with open arms and encourage you to take part in everything they do.
You might find a sport you love or a new sport you’re amazing at
Most schools don’t offer some of the wackier sports, such as lacrosse, and it could become your new favourite sport. There is no better place to try out a sports society than CCCU so sign up now.
You can make new friends
Some people make their best friends at sports society. It’s also a great way to connected with people at university, and you might even meet other people through their friends.
Distraction from university stress
University can be a stressful place. Trust me. And so getting out and relieving some stress from university work could help you cope with your studies.
Your own mental health is the most important thing and leaving your studies for a couple of hours or so to do something different can rejuvenate you, and make you a lot better.
Socials are great!
The sport socials are the stuff of legend, even if you don’t drink alcohol. ‘Socials’ night is normally Wednesday so make sure to leave that evening free for a great night.
Looks good on your CV…
All employers look for the extra-curricular activities on your CV as it shows you have gone the extra mile to make the most of your time at university. It will certainly look good when you for job interviews.
An active lifestyle will not only benefit your body, but also your mind. A healthy mind will allow you to concentrate better in lectures. It’s very easy to get a take-away in Canterbury but societies will help to ensure you stay fit and healthy throughout your time at uni.
Way to pass time
Societies are a great way to pass the time as well as staying healthy. No matter how much you want to, you can’t drink all day and night, and these are great ways to get out of your house and try something new.
There are great things about every sports society at CCCU and the main one is, they’re FUN. If the first one isn’t to your liking, there is another one just waiting for you to sign up.
