Sporting Schools

Sport In Focus


Sporting Schools is an Australian Sports Commission initiative funding over 5700 in-school sports programs, with an aim to engage more than 850,000 children across Australia in what will be the country’s largest school-based participation program. Sport Schools replaces the previous Active After-School Communities (AASC) program.
For accredited Aussie Hoops centres, Sporting Schools will:

  • allow centres to deliver a four to seven-week school-based Aussie Hoops themed program at multiple schools in their region, all year round
  • form a great opportunity for basketball associations to build stronger links with their local school network, and develop better school engagement strategies
  • have a much greater link with Basketball Australia and Basketball Victoria, compared with the AASC program
  • offer at least the same level of funding for associations to deliver high quality in-school programs, coupled with curriculum and resources provided by Basketball Australia.
