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 year 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. Sport Australia has partnered with more than 35 national sporting organisations (NSOs) to facilitate delivery of Sporting Schools programs.

The objectives of Sporting Schools are to:

  • improve children’s fundamental movement skills to encourage lifelong participation in physical activity
  • increase the awareness of the value of sport in schools
  • engage children in high quality sporting programs
  • connect children with sport in their local communities
  • develop the capability and capacity of sport to drive nationwide participation growth.
