Not only are you doing your body good, you're doing your brain good too! Sport has beneficial effects on sleep, stress, anxiety, a sense of personal mastery and control, and boosts self-esteem. It's also an opportunity to meet other students and make new friends!

CHOICE of sport

sport academics

At the USMB Sports Department, you have the choice of practicing a sporting activity independently, in academics (noted) or competitively.

Whether you're a beginner or an expert, you're bound to find the sport and type of practice that suits you best. 

Practical info: a medical certificate of non-contraindication is not required for non-competitive sports.

At academics (rated or unrated) 

At academics, your practice is supervised by an SDS teacher who helps you to progress in your practice, develop your skills and achieve your objectives. 

By practicing at academics, you can earn credits (ECTS), provided that the sport is included in your studies (optional or bonus UE) and that you choose it when you register.  

On your own
For independent practice, SDS gives you access to several rooms and equipment (weight benches, basketballs, volleyballs, badminton rackets and shuttlecocks, etc.) outside teaching hours and sports meetings. Relais Sport students are on hand to welcome you and guide you in your practice. 

In competition
Represent your department or university in university sports competitions! To take part in regional or national university championships, all you need to do is join the Fédération Française de Sport Universitaire and obtain your FFSU license from the Association Sportive de l'USMB. 

The competitions, whose calendar is drawn up each year by the FFSU, generally start in November and take place on Thursday afternoons.
