Helping schools increase children's participation and opportunities in sport

Sporting Schools offers grant opportunities for primary schools, and targeted grant opportunities for secondary schools in relation to Years 7 and 8 students. Grants support the delivery of sport-based programs to help students build the confidence and capability to be active for life.

Sporting Schools has partnered with more than 40 national sporting organisations (NSOs) and national sporting organisations for people with disability (NSODs) to facilitate delivery of Sporting Schools programs.

The objectives of Sporting Schools are to:

  • - engage primary school students in free, high-quality sport programs at school
  • - engage secondary school students (Years 7-8) in free, high-quality sport programs at school, particularly inactive students, girls, and students attending schools in disadvantaged areas
  • - establish partnerships between sporting organisations and schools to promote involvement in sport outside of school
  • - develop the capability of schools and teachers to provide students with positive sport experiences
  • - build the capability of coaches and the sport workforce
  • - support life-long involvement in sport and physical activity to enhance health and wellbeing.

Term 3 grants closed 7 June

The next grant application period is for Term 4, opening Monday 5 August 2024.
