Varsity is all about respect and fair play, therefore before all athletes compete in the event they must declare and adhere to the Varsity Oath. This oath embeds a culture of pride, equality and respect for the competitors and spectators. This year we have created a joint university film to embody the spirit of The Oath; the video features some of our talented Varsity athletes and the sports officer from each university.
