Sumy State University for more than 30 years has a basketball section. At its time it was organized by the famous coach and founder of the Department of Physical Education, Associate Professor, Honored Worker of Sports Yuriy Kostiantynovych Berest. Now the section bears his name. Since its foundation, it works during the same time from 15:00 to 17:00 every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Throughout this period, active role in the trainings of section play the teachers the Faculty of Economics.

Melnyk, C.E.S., associate professor of the Department of Economics and BA O.M. Matsenko, C.E.S., assistant professor of the Department of Finance P.M.

Thanks to this the students always have the opportunity to fight with the teachers not only in the classroom knowledge, but also test their skills on the basketball court, overcoming the leading teachers of the Faculty of Economics and Management. Moreover, regular visitors of basketball section, on request, can be exempt from physical education classes.

Systematic trainings allow the economists feel confident in the various competitions: inter-faculty, inter-institutional, local, regional, All-Ukrainian. For several years in a row, students-economists win prizes in inter-faculty basketball competitions. Also tournaments are frequently organized between students and teachers of the Department of Economics and Business Administration. Thus, such games already became traditional the day before the Day of the Faculty of Economics and Management, and on the Day of the Specialty "Economics of Enterprise", where the challenger cup is played between students and teachers. All interested students-economists can take part in these tournaments, regardless of age or gender.

Often students from Sumy National Agrarian University, Machine-Building College, school students and others come to visit us for the purpose of friendly basketball games.

Recently, into the training process was involved a qualified coach - a former professional basketball player, master of sports Dziubenko S.N. Material basketball base includes well-lit warm gym, leather balls, equipped locker rooms and showers. Thanks to these any student can quickly learn the basics of basketball and to be in good shape during the study year.
