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. Sporting Schools replaces the previous Active After-School Communities (AASC) program.
For Collingwood Basketball Association as an accredited Aussie Hoops centre , Sporting Schools will:
- allow us to deliver a four to seven-week school-based Aussie Hoops themed program at multiple schools in our region, all year round
- form a great opportunity for Collingwood All Stars to build stronger links with our local school network, and develop better school engagement strategies
- have a much greater link with Basketball Australia and Basketball Victoria, compared with the previous AASC program
- allows us to deliver high quality in-school programs, coupled with curriculum and resources provided by Basketball Australia.
