Queensland Representative School Sport (QRSS) offers students in Queensland an opportunity to participate in all facets of the representative school sport pathway and actively promotes the development of students in all areas of sport.
Student official opportunities include:
- referee/umpire roles
- Student Advisory Committee membership.
Please go to this survey link
to register an interest. Some sports will be appointed through the sporting organisation and QRSS will work with the host region and sporting organisation to support referee/umpire opportunities at state championships.
Student Advisory Committee
Students who aspire to be leaders in sport have an opportunity to be a student member of the QRSS Student Advisory Committee, giving students a voice in matters within the representative sport pathway. They will work with the QRSS sport officers and sport executives within their chosen sport to:
- offer insight and student perspective
- develop skills to lead, communicate and collaborate regarding the organisation and management of sport.
Student Referee/Umpire program
Students have an opportunity to participate in the program at all state and national championships. Students will require certain levels of qualifications in order to be considered. Subsidies may be available for students to assist with transport and accommodation, however, own transport and accommodation will be required, along with principal approval to attend.
Information will be collated from the survey and parents will be contacted to seek appropriate approvals to attend state and national championships. For some championships, referee/umpires are outsourced from sporting organisations.
To referee/umpire at the national championships, students are selected from the state championships (only 2 students are selected to attend the national championships).
