Sporting Schools

GippSport Streetgames is proud to be providing Sporting Schools. Sporting Schools is an Australian Government initiative designed to help schools increase children's participation in sport and connect them with community sport opportunities. 

 

Sport Australia, in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Sport, has partnered with GippSport Streetgames to roll out Sporting Schools throughout Gippsland. There is a program for primary school students and a more targeted program for Year 7 and 8 students. 

 

Sporting Schools is fully funded by the Australian Government making it free to all students. Streetgames is dedicated to supporting this initiative as it helps students build the confidence and skills to be active in life.  

 

Research illuminates the benefits of sports programs in schools, as they provide increased confidence, competence, and motivation for students to continue sport throughout later life. Additionally, Sport in school offers the student increased concentration in classes, increased overall health, and healthier bodies.
