2018 Queensland School Sport State Team Officials


The process for appointing state team officials has been under review and a new process will be adopted for 2018 appointments. The changes will result in team officials being appointed by a selection panel, rather than a state-wide ballot, who will give careful consideration to the following:


The process for appointment from this point forward will be: 

  • Monday 9 October 2017 - QSSU staff provide a list of all applicants to sport specific committee executives

  • Monday 30 October - sport specific committee feedback due to QSS Unit
  • Friday 10 November 2017 - QSS Selection Panel meet
  • Thursday 23 November 2017 - sport specific committees are informed of appointments.
  • Friday 24 November 2017 - all applicants are informed of appointments (after which a list of appointed QSS State Team Officials will be uploaded onto the QSS website)


Conditions of appointment 

  • Preference should be given to suitably qualified, practising, registered teachers. Non-teacher officials must provide evidence of holding a current Blue Card. 
  • At least one official appointed to each team must be a registered teacher.
  • At least one of the team officials must be of the same gender as the members of the team.
  • The Queensland coach should possess at least a current Level 1 Coaching Accreditation (or equivalent) - please note some sports may require a higher level of accreditation.
  • Sports Trainers must possess at least a current level one sports trainer qualification.
  • All team officials must also meet any additional sport specific criteria as listed in section 6.4 of the relevant sports competition procedures (found via the alphabetical list of sports on the left-hand side of the sports information tab found here).
  • All team officials must possess a current first aid / sports medicine and CPR qualification for the dates of the championship, training and travel days.
