Sporting Schools

Sporting Schools is a $200 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools to increase children’s participation in sport, and to connect them with community sporting opportunities.

Research shows that an early connection to sport can positively influence participation and encourage a lifelong love of sport.

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has partnered with more than 30 national sporting organisations (NSOs) to deliver sport before, during and after school hours.

Sporting Schools programs are provided free to children and their families, underpinned by the quality assurance of NSO-endorsed sporting products.

Sporting Schools is committed to helping sport, schools and communities work closer than ever to increase sport delivery and participation in schools.
