Athlete Appearances

Meet Sunshine Coast Lightning


Sunshine Coast Lightning is committed to supporting and engaging with the Sunshine Coast community and developing long lasting relationships with Members and fans. Our focus in relation to athlete appearances is to encourage and motivate attendees to lead an active and healthy lifestyle, while also developing strong community bonds.

Appearances can include the athletes hosting clinics as well as attending community, sporting and school events e.g. school assemblies, Club presentation nights and charity events. While we endeavour to consider all requests, there are a number of player appearance guidelines that must be taken into account:

  • Athletic/exercise programs that may present the risk of injury to the player or participants will not be considered.
  • Please review the Suncorp Super Netball Fixture before submitting your request. Appearances on match or travel days are unfortunately not possible.
  • Player appearances should generally not exceed two hours.
  • All appearances are dependent on players’ training and work/study schedules, which can change at short notice. Lightning reserves the right to substitute a player, reschedule or cancel an appearance if a player becomes unavailable.
  • Appearance requests for organisations or businesses in competition with Lightning’s associated sponsors will not be considered.


Cancellations made by an individual or organisation will be handled according to the time between Lightning being notified of the cancellation and the scheduled appearance date as follows:

  • 14 or more days – full refund.
  • 7-13 days – full refund less $75 administration fee.
  • Less than 7 days – non-refundable.

In the unlikely event Lightning has to cancel an appearance, a full refund will be provided.


Lightning will respond to requests within two weeks of receiving them. Requests must be submitted by filling in the player appearance request form.

Please note that while we endeavour to fulfil every request, our athletes may not be available for some appearances. If no one is available on your preferred date, we will work with you to try and find a suitable alternate date.

If you require any information or have any questions, please email the community department on Thank you for your interest and ongoing support! #UnitedInYellow
