The Kovsie men’s and women’s hockey teams have positive expectations for the University Sport South Africa (USSA) national student tournament.

The USSA championships were hosted by the University of the Free State (UFS) from 2 to 6 July 2018. This year’s championships will have 45 competing teams and will thus be the biggest ever USSA hockey tournament.

For the female squad to qualify for the 2019 Varsity Sports tournament, they have to secure a spot among the top-seven teams. In order to get back into the A section, the Kovsie men’s team must win their tournament. 

The matches are scheduled to take place on the UFS Bloemfontein Campus astro fields.

The UFS women’s team, captained by Antonet Louw, is set to play on Monday at 15:35 against Nelson Mandela University (NMU); on Tuesday at 17:00 against the University of Johannesburg (UJ); and on Wednesday at 18:25 against North-West University (NWU). The play-off matches will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

The men’s team, with Cheslyn Neethling as captain, will play on Monday at 17:00 against the Central University of Technology; on Tuesday at 15:35 against the Tswane University of Technology; on Wednesday at 17:00 against the Vaal University of Technology; on Thursday at 18:25 against the University of KwaZulu-Natal; and on Friday at 15:35 against Rhodes University.

UFS registration process extended to 17 February 2017
2017-02-10

The registration period for all new and returning students on the Bloemfontein and Qwaqwa Campuses has been extended until Friday 17 February 2017.
 
The extension is granted in the light of a request received from the Transitional Student Council on the Bloemfontein Campus, in consultation with the Student Representative Council on the Qwaqwa Campus, as well as a request from Universities South Africa (USAf) to universities around the country to extend the registration period due to NSFAS and funding problems experienced by students.
 
The registration process will continue in the Callie Human Centre and Examination Centre on the Bloemfontein Campus and the Nelson Mandela Hall on the Qwaqwa Campus until Friday 17 February 2017.
 
Students are advised that they will need to report to their respective faculties for academic advice before they can be registered.
