A $35 late fee applies to all registrations received after the Australian University Sport deadline. Any changes to registration information after the deadline will incur an $11 administration fee. In some instances late registrations will not be accepted by GUGC Sport.
Can I compete in more than one event?
Yes, you can enter as many events as you like, just be aware there maybe additional costs.
Why do I have to pay Australian University Sport and GUGC Sport?
Australian University Sport (AUS) charge a registration fee to attend their event. This must be paid to AUS directly via their website. As you are representing Griffith Gold Coast, we help you with uniform, travel and other arrangements which incur separate costs. GUGC Sport subsidises each athlete and approved non-competing officials to offset these additional costs.
What is the good behaviour bond?
By registering for this event you are accepting the terms and conditions outlined in the GUGC Sport Athletes agreement
. You are representing Griffith University for the entirety of the tour, on and off the field, and you must behave accordingly. To ensure you abide by and are aware of the importance of your requirements as a Griffith Gold Coast athlete and student, we charge a good behaviour bond. The bond is refunded post Games provided you have not breached the agreement. If damages (to accommodation, sport venues or other) result due to poor behaviour and charges in excess of the $100 good behaviour bond fee are incurred, you are liable to pay the additional costs.
When will I get my good behaviour bond back?
Good behaviour bonds do take time to process and we appreciate your patience. Provided the Sports Officer has authorised a full refund, you should receive the funds in your account within 10-15 working days, from the final day of competition. For students who have incurred some charges, this may take longer. If you are anticipating a full refund and have not received your good behaviour bond reimbursement by Friday 28 October 2016 please contact the Sports Officer.
I'm not a student, can I still get involved?
Yes! We are always in need of team coaches, managers and other support staff to assist the GUGC Sport teams. Please contact our Sports Officer for more information.
