VIS Speaker Programs

Our athletes have triumphed in the most adverse circumstances and learnt valuable lessons in life which they can share with your school, corporate or community group.

VIS coaches and support staff are considered to be amongst the world’s best in their fields of expertise and have a proud record of producing Olympic, Paralympic and World Champions. 

Our athletes and experts are available to speak to your group and you can enquire through our Athlete and Expert Speaker Program. 

Victorian Government primary and secondary schools can book athlete speakers free of charge, via our 'Be Fit. Be Well' program. 

Athlete and Expert Speaker Program

The VIS is home to a stable of sports stars including Olympians, Paralympians and World Champion athletes.

Many have extraordinary stories to share and, importantly, you can book these speakers at the most reasonable rates in Australia.

Our athletes have won Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games medals as well as World Championships and World Cups.

Income received for speaking engagements is paid to the athletes to assist with their sporting endeavours.

Our experts help high-performance athletes to succeed through world-class coaching, management and support services. We are at the forefront of sports theory and practice – working across different types of sport, events and research areas as the main hub of knowledge for high performance sport in Victoria.

You can book one of our experts for a presentation to learn more about how they help develop Victorian elite athletes to become world best. 

Be Fit. Be Well 

Thanks to School Sport Victoria we are able to connect our athletes to Victorian Government primary and secondary schools free of charge.

The Victorian Institute of Sport schools program was introduced on the back of the famous Moneghetti review of Physical and Sport Education in Victoria in the mid 1990s and has been running successfully for over two decades.

The athletes' message to the students emphasises the link between physical activity and wellness. Key topics include motivation, resilience, goal setting, coping with pressure and health/nutrition.

We offer both in-person visits to schools and virtual presentations.
