Sporting Schools is a national program available to all Australian primary schools.
It will engage more children in more sport based activity within schools and then convert their interest into club based setting so they can gain a healthier mind and body, have fun and learn sport activities and games in a safe environment. Fostering a lifelong interest in sport.
Funding is available to schools to engage quality coaches to deliver the sporting programs developed by the partners of Sporting Schools. These activities can be delivered to children before, during and after school.
