Nationals Div 1 is Australia’s largest annual multi-sport event, where a team of Griffith University students compete against 42 other universities. Individuals and teams competing in Nationals Div 1 are all contending for the overall championship titles in their chosen sport, whilst trying to avoid relegation to division 2.
We will assist you in all aspects of the lead up and throughout the competition – registration, trials, training, uniforms, merchandise, accommodation, team bonding events, and more. We can even provide alternative payment arrangements for those students who find themselves a bit stuck financially.
The sports Griffith University are eligible to compete in at Nationals Div 1 (based on previous years results) are listed below. In team sports, we are only able to send one team, per sport, per division. Therefore, there will be trials held in March/April 2019 to help us select our team and you can trial for multiple sports. For individual sports you will need to adhere to the UniSport Australia Eligibility requirements such as qualifying times for that specific sport event. If your sport isn’t listed below please refer to the 2019 National Div 2 website or Other Tertiary Events Website as your sport may occur at a different time of year.
