It is with great honour and pride that I can declare the 2017 Charles Sturt University Football Club as the largest CSU sporting club EVER.
After many reshuffles and late requests, it can be confirmed that CSUFC will field a whopping 10 teams this season. 174 students have registered to form the following teams:
- 1st Grade Men White
- 1st Grade Men Red
- 2nd Grade Men
- 3rd Grade Men
- 4th Grade Men
- 4th Grade Mixed
- 1st Grade Ladies
- 2nd Grade Ladies
- 3rd Grade Ladies White
- 3rd Grade Ladies Red
The enormity of registered clubmen and women is a credit to the culture that has been garnered in previous years and continued through to the present season.
At the beginning of the year, it was our goal to create an inviting and rewarding environment for all who were looking to join a club. We set out to embody the notion that we are “the club for everyone.”
The record-breaking number of CSUFC members this year is truly reflective of our success in achieving this goal.
At CSUFC, we welcome the task of providing CSU students with the opportunity to enjoy a well-rounded and fulfilled university experience – an experience that nobody should be denied.
CSUFC is proud to promote physical activity and social interaction between people from all backgrounds, genders and levels of sporting experience. We take great responsibility in ensuring that every member of the CSUFC community has a positive experience and can walk away at the end of the season having gained something.
The spirit and resilience displayed every time a Stag or Vixen pulls on a red and white jersey is infectious. The bond between club members is as strong as that of a family. And the level of voluntary commitment and dedication displayed by students is inspiring.
I am proud to be the President of this club for 2017, but prouder still to be a part of an organisation that is built on such strong foundations.
This is why CSUFC has become the largest club ever, and this is why I will always be passionate about the success of the Stags and Vixens.
Good luck to all for the 2017 season – let’s bring home some silverware and have a great time doing it!
