International Committee


As the national member of the International University Sports Federation (FISU), the U SPORTS International Program is mandated to facilitate high performance competitive opportunities for student-athletes who are Canadian, between the ages of 17 and 28, and enrolled full-time in a post-secondary institution.

Separate Winter and Summer Universiades are held every two odd years, and offer competitive opportunities in over 20 sports.
