Sporting Schools Funding

Sporting Schools offers grant opportunities for primary schools, and targeted grant opportunities for secondary schools in relation to Years 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.

The objectives of Sporting Schools are to:

  • Engage primary school students in free, high-quality sport programs at school;
  • Engage secondary school students (Years 7-8) in free, high-quality sport programs at school, particularly inactive students, girls, and students attending schools in disadvantaged areas;
  • Establish partnerships between sporting organisations and schools to promote involvement in sport outside of school;
  • Develop the capability of schools and teachers to provide students with positive sport experiences;
  • Build the capability of coaches and the sport workforce;
  • Support life-long involvement in sport and physical activity to enhance health and wellbeing.

Cricket Australia offers Sporting Schools packages to both Primary and Secondary Schools. All of our Cricket programs are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and are an integral part of the Australian Cricket Strategy which aims to grow participation, whilst providing quality experiences for all students.

All Cricket Sporting Schools Programs are managed internally by Cricket Australia which provides us with great flexibility to cater a program suited to your school’s needs.
