"We want you to be active, we want you to be healthy, we want you to be happy"

This is the motto on which the entire organization of the Sports Office of the Academic Association of the University of Algarve is based. With annual dynamism, the activities are aimed at providing the whole academic community with the practice of different physical and sports modalities, in different contexts.

In promoting an active and healthy life, the Sports Office organizes an annual program of physical and sports activities called “Faz Esporte” for the entire academic community. This program is based on 4 different areas: external competition (competitions within the scope of the Academic Federation of University Sports ), internal competition (rector trophies), group classes and events.
