Each sport that competes at the 2019 Nationals is required to have a Griffith Team Leader (GTL) to assist in coordination and management of their team. In most cases, a student from each of a Brisbane and Gold Coast Campus will be appointed as a GTL for each sport.
As a GTL, you will assist Griffith University Team Management (UTMs) in ensuring that the team is well represented both on and off the field and the highest standards of sportsmanship and behaviour are upheld at all times. You would be responsible for ensuring that your team meets registration requirements and payment deadlines, communicating information amongst the team, ensuring team members perform at the best of their ability and a high standard of behaviour, conduct and sportsmanship is maintained at all times as well as being responsible for the promotion of 2019 Nationals.
Training and Professional Development Opportunities
The opportunity to assist in the development of Griffith University sport programs, playing a role in providing pathways for sport through sporting clubs & 2019 Nationals representation.
Practical experience that will look great on your CV – written & verbal references can be provided post 2019 Nationals Div 1 & Div 2
Financial Subsidy – GTL’s will have their Griffith University packages subsidised. The subsidy will only be covered if the GTL attends all meetings, trainings, assists in the running of all promotional events and reaches personal KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators). The subsidy amount will be based on achieving percentage weighted KPI’s
GTL’s must have exceptional organisational skills. They must also have a broad knowledge of their chosen sport, have previous experience in a leadership role and be available to attend all training sessions. The GTL must act maturely and responsibly at all times when acting as a representative of Griffith University and be a leader and mentor to their fellow team members. The GTL does not have to be the best player on the team, but should be seen as a team player and a leader who is able to make fair decisions and represents Griffith University with pride.
We will be announcing our 2019 Griffith Team Leaders on the 11th March 2019. If you have any sport specific questions or need more information about training/trials, please contact your Griffith Team Leader. If your sport does not have a Griffith Team Leader allocated – please contact the Sports Officer – firstname.lastname@example.org
