QGSSSA Sport and COVID-19 Statement

The Association Board met on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) to all current and upcoming Association sports.

The Queensland Girls Secondary Schools Sports Association wishes to advise that all Term 1 and Term 2 QGSSSA sports and trainings have been cancelled, effective immediately.

Following careful consultation with key stakeholders and following Government, SSO and NSO directives, the decision was made in the best interests of health and safety for all schools, participants, staff, officials, volunteers and spectators involved in current and upcoming QGSSSA Sport.

The current season of Cricket has been cancelled, as has the upcoming Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

The remainder of the Autumn Fixture season (Basketball, Football and Touch Football) has also been cancelled.

The Term 2 Cross Country Championships and associated meets have been cancelled.

QGSSSA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves, keeping all key stakeholders informed of any updates or changes to the current status. The Board will reconvene in Term 2 to review the status of future sports and trainings.
