As a member of UniSport Australia, UC has the opportunity to compete in a number of national events throughout the year. These events see the best student athletes going head to head across a number of sports, all in the hopes of winning the title of overall Champion.

In 2021, Nationals Division 1 and Division 2 Nationals will be both be held in September with thousands of athletes expected to descend on the Gold Coast for the flagship event. Teams will compete in men’s, women’s and mixed categories in over 20 sports, creating a tough contest for overall title. Team UC is looking to put up another strong performance after taking out the pennant in Women’s Volleyball for the first time in 2019.

The 2021 combined Division 1 and Division 2 event will take place between the 25th of September and 1st of October.

In 2021, all teams wishing to attend the Nationals Competition must have a dedicated Team Manager. The Team Manager can be either a competitor or non-playing official and must assist the team and UC Sport in getting the team away to the Gold Coast.

Applications are now open for Team Managers and can be submitted by returning the application form to UC Sport.
