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.
