Sporting Schools Programs

“Sporting Schools” is a funded sport program provided by the Australian Sports Commission. Funding is available to primary schools in Victoria. Funding is provided directly to schools from the ASC. Schools nominate a sport usually on a term-to-term basis. Orienteering Victoria currently offers orienteering programs within Greater Melbourne, Geelong, Ballarat, Shepparton & Goulburn Valley, the North East, Macedon Ranges and Bendigo.
A standard OV program might include:

  • Mapping of your school
  • Provision of Lessons
  • Professional development for staff
  • Purchasing a schools orienteering kit

All programs are tailored to your school’s need in discussion with your staff.
More details can be found on the Sporting Schools website.
