Join in the fun. Play club sport!

Students at <<insert name of school>> have been receiving a great introduction to sport through Sport Australia’s Sporting Schools Program, physical education classes and other programs. Help your children take the next step and play club sport.

Sport helps children make friends, develop new skills, build confidence and improve their fitness. It can also help children learn about teamwork and how to win and lose gracefully. Most importantly, studies show that children who participate in sport are happier, so start exploring the many sporting options available.

The Australian Sports Commission has partnered with more than 35 national sporting organisations who offer quality sport programs for beginners and social players, right through to more structured competitions for children with a strong competitive spirit.

Visit the new Find a Club page on the Sporting Schools website and find the right sport for your child today.

Sporting Schools is an Australian Government initiative designed to help schools increase children's participation in sport and connect them with community sport opportunities.
