Good luck to the Redbacks at the 2022 UniSport Nationals!

Join us in wishing the Redbacks good luck as they jet over to Perth for the 2022 UniSport Nationals.

The 2022 UniSport Nationals in Perth (Whadjuk) kicks off next week.

Running from 24-30 September 2022, and with over 40 member universities a part of UniSport, it is considered one of Australia's most highly anticipated university sporting competitions.

Spanning 26 different sports, the 16 representative sports teams for the RMIT Redbacks hope to claim some medals for their respective sports, such as hockey, tennis, basketball, ultimate frisbee and many more!

Caley Manzie, the Captain of the Redbacks hockey team will be competing in Perth, shared their thoughts on the importance of sports in universities.

"When you’re travelling while you’re playing sports, it’s such a great experience."

You just get to see all different kinds of sports, you get to cheer each other on, and you also go interstate and get to see different areas of the country.

Earlier this month RMIT Sport celebrated 'Wear It Purple Day' with a RMIT Sport Pride Party.

Redbacks Captain Alex Smyth said such inclusive events are the reasons why RMIT has such strong representation at the UniSport Nationals.

"We celebrate events like Wear it Purple Day to encourage young Australian's to get involved in sport," he said.

"We've had a great day down here and are looking forward to seeing you all in Perth!"

Nearly 150 RMIT athletes are expected to be in Perth for the UniSport Nationals.

Join us in wishing them the best of luck as they compete for gold!
