If you’re not a member of a club, that’s ok! You can still attend the trials. Some sports however don’t have a club on campus and you will need to contact our Sports Officer instead. We will keep continue to update this page as trial dates and information become available – keep checking!
Can’t attend trials?
If you are unable to attend trials and wish to be considered, please complete this form by Friday 4 August. Please note trials are compulsory unless you have a valid reason or medical certificate.
You will be representing Griffith University on and off the field for the duration of the Games and therefore must abide by the terms and conditions of the GUGC Athlete’s Agreement. You will be prompted to accept these terms and conditions during the registration process below.

Once you have attended trials, have been selected for a team, and you have received your team code – you are ready to register. If your sport didn’t have trials, you have already contacted our Sports Officer or the club contact and received your registration code, then you are also good to go.
Didn’t make the sport you were hoping for? Don’t worry, we have plenty of spots available – why not try a different sport? Contact our Sports Officer for more information.
