Commitment to child safety

The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is committed to Australian sport environments that are safe, supportive, and friendly for children and other vulnerable people.

The ASC Child Safe Policy outlines our commitment to child safeguarding, and the obligations and responsibilities of our people and stakeholders to protect children.

All coaches delivering Sporting Schools programs to students must hold a current working with children check and abide by child safe requirements.

It is strongly encouraged that coaches undertake child safeguarding training either through their NSO or Sport Integrity Australia.

How to register

Sporting Schools has partnered with more than 35 key NSOs and state sporting organisations to help deliver a quality Sporting Schools experience.

Coaches wanting to deliver Sporting Schools programs need to register directly with their NSO. Select from the list of sports below to view their contact details and find out their coaching requirements in 'Who can deliver?'.

How does it work?

Once a coach has registered and successfully met the relevant coach requirements for their chosen sport, the NSO or NSO nominated coaching provider may include them as part of their coaching network. Coaches can then be assigned school bookings using the Sporting Schools booking system. Coach booking requests are managed via email, allowing coaches to accept or decline bookings assigned to them.

From Term 2, 2024 it will be is a requirement that all coaches registering to deliver under Sporting Schools, must have completed the free Community Coaching course provided by the Australian Sports Commission.
