How to join the Sports Federation

The MSF offer many opportunities for you to get involved in sport outside your University Studies. With a range of activities to choose from, you will discover amazing opportunities, make new passions and make lifelong friends. Whether you’re interested in playing sport or rather in administrative role within a club; you will develop new skills that will help boost your C.V. and employability – which is essential when you graduate.

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.
