Sporting Schools Programs
The Sporting Schools Program is a FREE government funded initiative program that is designed to help schools to increase children’s participation in sport, and to connect children with community sport.
The Melbourne Sports Institute works extensively with the Australian Sports Commission promoting school sport to Victorian students and we believe this is another invaluable opportunity for primary aged students to benefit from the experienced Melbourne Sports Institute coaches through this Government funded sports program. The primary aim of the Melbourne Sports Institute sports programs is to nurture the development of sport from grass roots to professional levels in Victoria while embracing Australian values of fair play, team unity and morals.
The Melbourne Sports Institute has been formally endorsed to participate in the running of the following Sporting Schools Programs:
- Badminton Australia– ‘Shuttle Time’
- Baseball Australia– ‘Aussie T-Ball’
- Gymnastics Australia– ‘Launchpad!
- Hockey Australia– ‘Hookin2Hockey'
- Squash Australia– ‘Oz Squash’
- Swimming Australia
- Table Tennis Australia – ‘Tops!'
- Volleyball Australia – ‘Spikezone’
All primary & secondary (year 7 & 8) schools throughout Australia can apply for this funding for all terms of the year. Approved schools will receive between $1300 and $3100 to be used for the provision/delivery of sport before during or after school to their students.
