COVID-19 Update

Update from JCUSA as of 22/03/20:

Dear JCU-sporters.

Due to the social distancing requirements and our responsibility to keep our staff and students safe, we have regrettably made the tough decision to indefinitely postpone all Social sport, Inter-faculty Sport Fisher Shield sport, and Gunyarra Sport as of 12pm today (Monday 23rd March 2020). Gyms on Both campus' will also be closed as of 12pm today.

We are working our hardest to find alternate activities to offer our students that meet social distancing requirements and we will communicate these plans and begin rolling these out as soon as possible.

We are currently working on a plan with our JCUSA Student council as to how best deal with prepaid gym memberships, sport registrations and sign up fees. Gym members and anyone who has signed up for semester 1 Social sport or upcoming Fisher shield sport through our online system (Fusesport) will be contacted via email if on file, in regards to how we will be dealing with, and processing your memberships and registrations. We are also still communicating with First aid providers in regards to prepaid first aid courses and will have more information on that soon.

Updates will be provided on our JCUSA Sport and fitness Face book group/pages as well as our website as soon as we have had a chance to create a plan and get some systems in place to deal with these unprecedented measures we are having to take.
