Sporting Schools will engage more than 850,000 children across Australia in what will be the country’s largest school-based participation programme.
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) has partnered with 32 national sporting organisations (NSOs) to offer sporting programmes to children before, during or after school. Registration is free for all Australian primary schools, sporting organisations, and coaches.
By bringing sports, schools, and community organisations together, Sporting Schools aims to increase children’s participation in sport and to connect with local sporting clubs in their community.
The Tamworth Basketball Association has registered with Sporting Schools and can support school sporting programmes by providing registered coaches to deliver a range of sports.
By focusing on having fun, having a go and getting active, Sporting Schools will provide children with positive sporting experiences to help foster a lifelong interest in sport. Tamworth Basketball Association supports this through delivering the national Vicinity Centres Aussie Hoops program, which focuses on providing safe, fun and engaging activities that get all children involved, regardless of their level of ability.
