Calling all coaches

The Northern Uni Games are fast approaching, therefore we need your help! If you would like to be volunteer your time, we are looking for coaches. If you would like to be involved, we’d love to hear from you.

We are looking for coaches for the following CQUniversity teams:

Basketball- women’s

Football –men’s

Futsal- women

Netball- women

Touch- men’s, women’s and mixed

Volleyball- men’s and women

Competition draws will be available mid-June, but we expect competitions to be held 9am to 5pm. If you know anyone who might be interested, please ask them to contact for more information.


Volunteering at an Australian University Sport (AUS) event presents an opportunity to work alongside sport and event management professionals. Stand out from the crowd by developing new skills and acquiring real world experience. Internship and Games time volunteer positions also provide an opportunity to make new friends, achieve personal satisfaction, and most importantly have fun.
