Sporting Schools


Sporting Schools is a $100 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools to increase children’s participation in sport, and to connect children with community sport.

Sporting Schools will fund sporting activities, including volleyball in more than 5,700 schools and provide access to a range of trained community coaches.
