Sporting Schools funding now open!

Primary Schools can now apply for a Sporting Schools funding grant to deliver a before, during or after school sporting activity. Sporting Schools is a $100 million Federal Government programme, designed to connect schools with local sporting clubs, coaches and coaching providers to tailor the sport to the local needs.



Sporting Schools has also partnered with more than 30 national sporting organisations to help drive children's lifelong love of sport. The aim of this programme is about enjoyment because Sporting Schools is focusing on getting children active and socially engaged with the added benefit of getting fitter and healthier along the way. Applications need to be lodged by June 26!

It's not too late for primary schools to register. Go to www.sportingschools.gov.au to find out more or call 1300 785 707.
