Professional Teams

The University of Canberra is the proud naming rights sponsor of professional women’s basketball team, the UC Capitals, and elite female rugby union team, the UC7s.

With sport at the heart of UC, the teams use the university as their training base during their respective seasons.

The University of Canberra Capitals are the ACT’s most successful sporting team, having won nine championships in the Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL) since the club was founded in 1984.

The UC Capitals compete against seven other teams from across Australia and boast some of the highest crowd attendance numbers and most passionate fans in the league.

The UC7s are the University of Canberra women’s rugby 7s representative team, competing in the Uni7s series against Australia’s top university teams.

The Uni7s program is part of the AU7s elite-level competition pathway, with UC alumni having represented both Australia and the United States.

Support is provided to UC7s players who are interested in pursuing tertiary education through UC.
