Sports packages are booked via the Sporting Schools Booking System.
You will need to be a nominated contact for your school (Coordinator, Principal or Finance Contact) to access the Booking System.
NOTE: before you start, it is advised that you have reviewed the program parameters and terms and conditions.
To book a sports package:

2. Click ‘Schools Login’ at the top of the page then click ‘Schools User Login’ to sign in to your Sporting Schools account.
3. Sign in using your email address and password.
4. Your landing page will appear, select the Booking System tab and click ‘Make a Booking’.
Tip: When you are logged in, you can return to your landing page at any time by clicking on ’Home’ at the top of the page.
NOTE: If you are a combined school, first go to the Booking System tab and choose from Primary School Sports Packages or Secondary School Sports Packages.
5. Enter the total number of participants that will participate in the booking. You can now add multiple groups into one booking so this could be up to 300 students if a sport package allows for it.
5. A list of the sports available will appear. Select one or more sports that you would like to view the available packages for and then click 'View Packages'.
Note: the numbers in the circles indicate how many packages are available for each sport in your location.
NOTE: If you have not submitted an application or your funding has not been approved, the following message will appear.

7. Complete the group details by editing the participant numbers and year levels participating for each group. The number of groups has been pre-populated based on the number of students entered at the beginning of the booking and the student to coach ratio for each sport.
You can add extra groups by clicking 'Add Group' but this will incur a higher booking cost.
Once all required groups are edited, click 'Continue'.
8. Add the session dates for your sports package.
Edit your session dates and start times and click 'Done'.
If you will have recurring times or days for your groups, you have a couple of options that will auto-fill times and dates for you.
Same Day – selects the same date and time as the first session
Consecutive Days – selects the consecutive days that fall within a school week
Weekly – selects the same date and time one week after the prior session
Fortnightly – selects the same date and time two weeks after the prior session
Copy from previous group
If additional groups are similar to the first group dates, schools may now copy from the previous group.
Each session can then be edited if further changes are required.
Click 'Continue' once all session dates for all groups have been selected and confirmed.
9. You may choose to select add-ons to include as part of your sport package booking. Please see more detail about booking add-ons here. If your school does not require add-ons, please select 'Continue' to move to the next step. Not all sports have add-ons available for booking.
10. You will now get to the summary page.
Check and confirm your booking details and add-ons are correct. Once satisfied with your booking, read the declaration statements and tick 'I Agree' to accept the declaration. Click 'Submit Booking Request'.
