QUT Social Sport Organisational Improvement
We’ve all endured a season long of disappointing sport fixture due to a disorganised Social Sport Convener (Who is a paid employee). We deserve a better Social Sport Convener that is responsible and accountable.
Your team has probably experienced:
- Incorrect division placement
- Unanswered emails or phone calls
- Unanticipated playing time changes (in some cases 2 hours before games)
- Unreasonable amount of byes
- Missed out on securing a team spot at all
And the list continues…
This petition aims to serve as an official statement from the Social Sport Community to the QUT Student Guild, that we want a professional and accountable Sport Convener or at least a more efficient sport fixture in the semesters to come. There are a lot of costs involved. To put it into perspective Social Sport has 227 registered teams in social sport individually paying $500+ a semester to play on a weekly schedule, meaning that $113,500 is being exchanged at the minimum.
Social Sport is a big part of the QUT community and it would be sad to see a decline in the due to lack of professionalism.
