Welcome!  —  

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. In every two even years, 27 single-sport World University Championships are currently offered from March to December, and are generally sports not offered at the Universiades.
