If you’ve always been a very athletic person, or just have a love for a sport, then the thought of making money doing that thing has probably crossed your mind. As a student, you might be surprised to hear that that’s possible; you can actually make money from playing a sport while you’re on campus.
First You Need To Find Your Sport
If you already have a history of playing sports from SHS, finding your sport in the university is going to be that much easier. If you’re an athletic person looking for the right fit and are open to overcoming the learning curve then these are the options that you’re going to be working with: Swimming, Rugby, Goalball, Debate, Cricket, Chess, Baseball, Basketball, Volley Ball and Tennis.
Once you’ve found the sport that you’re interested in, you can get more information (what you should especially be on the lookout for is how to join your school’s team) from your university’s Sports Directorate.
Then You Need To Be Good Enough To Play In GUSA Games
