Hope everyone is doing well for the preparation of tests and assignments!
Anyways, I’m sure most of you have already heard of Bersatu Games. But to those whom haven’t, Bersatu Games is a series of sports event taking place in a certain location in New Zealand whereby all Malaysian athletes take part and compete against one another for the glory of their clubs and region.
UMSA has been participating in Bersatu Games for the past 3 years and has managed to take home the crown of Overall Champions for the past 2 years. Bersatu Games 2016 will be held in the beautiful location of Dunedin where you would not only be able to participate in your favourite sports, but also meet new Malaysians from every different University there is in New Zealand as well as travelling and visiting places you’ve never been before during your free time there!
There are a number of sports you can join and absolutely no limit of number of sports you can take part in (that is unless it clashes with another sport in the timetable)!
I truly hope that everyone, regardless of skill level or what year of study you’re currently at will be able to participate and join this amazing event this year. It’s not an everyday opportunity that one gets to play sports, meet amazing people and run around in the snow with your best buds so why not take this once in a lifetime opportunity to? I promise you’ll have an amazing experience that you will treasure throughout your whole life!
Regarding tryouts, we will be creating Google Docs where you would be able to give your information and if you’re able to attend the tryouts! Google Docs can be found on our UMSA group on Facebook, therefore, do check it out over there! Remember to lookout on tryouts details and the latest updates on Facebook!
Feel free to contact Sean Mak and Allen Wong anytime of the day if you have any questions, we will be happy to help you out. Take care peeps!
