“On behalf of the UWC Sport Department, the Student Sports Council and all our Sport Clubs, I would like to welcome you to the UWC Sport fraternity. We look forward to being of service to you and helping you grow and excel in your different sporting disciplines, sport clubs as well as committee responsibilities. The success of our clubs is dependent on the success of the committee members and their dedication to provide support to our Sport Administrators as well as fulfilling leadership responsibilities.

We have prepared this handbook to answer questions you might have on operations, policy and procedure. The purpose of this handbook is to serve only as a guide, read it thoroughly, and understand your portfolio, policies and procedures. Should you have any questions feel free to contact your Sport Administrator.

We hope you find your sport experience at the University rewarding and wish you great academic success.
Once again, a warm welcome to the Mother City, Cape Town, and most importantly to our beautiful campus, the University of the Western Cape!”
