Sporting Schools Grants

Eligible to:Schools
Funding:$1,000 to undisclosed
Round:Closes 26 August, 2022

Purpose

Sporting Schools funding is available through two funding programs for schools to deliver Sporting Schools programs before, during or after school hours.

Overview

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.

Sporting Schools offers two funding programs using one of Sport Aus’ NSO partners:

Primary School Grant:

Sporting Schools funding is available to primary schools to deliver free Sporting Schools programs before, during or after school, using one of our NSO partners.

Grants of between $1,000 and $3,600 (GST exclusive) are available per primary school for each term. This comprises:

  • a base funding amount determined by the total number of students enrolled in years P-6 at the school (as provided in the grant application);
  • an incentive funding amount for expected overall participant numbers (as provided in the grant application); and
  • a potential, additional ‘Special Circumstances’ funding amount of $500 (GST exclusive) to assist eligible schools with additional costs due to location or demographics. To be eligible for Special Circumstances funding, schools need to satisfy at least one of the criteria below:
    • Be a special school
    • Have students enrolled with special needs
    • Be located in an Indigenous community
    • Have students enrolled that identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander
    • Be located in a regional or remote location, as determined by the Accessibility and Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA) category classification.

The basis for calculating the base and incentive funding amounts is further in the guidelines document.

Secondary School Grant: 

Sporting Schools funding is available to secondary schools to deliver free Sporting Schools programs before, during or after school to students, using one of our NSO partners. The targeted program for students in years 7 and 8 is offered to address the barriers that prevent teenagers from participating in sport.

The objectives for the targeted, secondary schools component of Sporting Schools (for students in years 7 and 8) are to:

  • Tackle the decline in sport participation that occurs during adolescence.
    We seek to do this by targeting secondary students aged 12-14, particularly girls, encouraging long-lasting relationships with sport.
  • Increase physical activity in areas with large cohorts of inactive students.
    National data tells us that only one in ten Australian secondary school students get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day of the week. The targeted secondary schools (years 7 and 8) program provides sporting activities designed to motivate and spark the interest of these students.
  • Provide access to tailored resources for schools where there is evidence of disadvantage.
    Studies show that areas of social disadvantage can often link to large groups of inactive youth. By providing funding and additional resources, the program aims to reduce the barriers these schools face.

Grants of between $1,000 and $2,500 (GST exclusive) are available per secondary school for each term. The funding amount is based on the expected participant numbers (as provided in the grant application)
