USC Thunder

UniSC is proud to support USC Thunder, providing pathways from grassroots netball to professional competition.

UniSC is the Principal Partner of USC Thunder, a new team boosting the development of netball in the region.

The team plays and trains at the University's world-class sports stadium alongside Sunshine Coast Lightning, the two-time Suncorp Super Netball champions.

USC Thunder is supported by netball clubs from the Sunshine Coast to Caboolture in the south, through Gympie, Bundaberg and Rockhampton in the north, and as far west as Longreach.


USC Thunder will debut in Queensland Netball's Sapphire Series in June 2019.

The Sapphire Series is a semi-professional tournament run by Netball Queensland. The competition gives players, coaches and umpires a platform to impress for spots on the rosters of Australian Netball League and Suncorp Super Netball squads, including Sunshine Coast Lightning.

USC Thunder will also host a team in the second-tier Ruby Series, showcasing the best of the state’s emerging talent.

Go Thunder!
