To be entitled to join individual sports clubs at Plymouth Marjon University, students must first join the MSF for which there will be a fee. The funds raised from this process are re-invested into student sport to buy items such as sports kit and playing equipment as well as paying for the training facilities and coaches. MSF members are covered by Endsleigh Elite Personal Accident Insurance. In addition to the funds raised via this process Plymouth Marjon University also invests heavily in student sport. MSF and club memberships are valid for one academic year.
