Starting my second year of Uni in a few weeks. Was looking to join a team, probably football.
However, I have quite severe scoliosis. It doesn't *seem* to affect my ability to play, although my stamina will never be as perfect as it could but I am pretty sure I would get on one of the teams - not to sound big headed.
The advice I would be hoping to get from people is this - do teams shower together publicly? I keep my condition to myself and my immediate family, not even my closest friends know about my condition. It's just how I handle my condition myself, so please don't come out with anything like "You shouldn't be ashamed etc". I would rather keep it to myself.
So yeah, showering publicly is a big no-no for me. I wouldn't want to join if I had to do that. Sounds petty I know but...
Any advice appreciated...cheers.

Teams tend to shower in the same changing room yes, but if it's something you'd rather keep to yourself that's not usually a problem: you should be allowed to not shower with the rest of the team.
