    For Schools

    What’s new?

    Booking System open to all registered schools

    The Sporting Schools Booking System is now open to all registered schools regardless of whether they have approved funding for the term.

    Sporting Schools received feedback from schools wanting to book programs with our partner national sporting organisations and approved providers, even when they had not received Sporting Schools funding.

    All registered schools can now access the Sporting Schools Booking System to book programs and use either Sporting Schools funding, Sporting Schools Plus funding or use their own financial resources to pay for bookings.

    Bookings will be actioned in the same way as they are currently and will be available and accessible to registered school contacts by logging into the Sporting Schools portal.

     

    Change to booking Swimming programs

    Schools who want to run a Sporting Schools swimming program will now be required to use the Sporting Schools portal to record information about their chosen swimming facility and student participation.

    Providing these details will allow Sport Australia and Sporting Schools to be across the safety of students in swimming programs and support Swimming Australia in understanding the delivery of swimming programs and facilities across the country.

    Important: Completing this process will not submit a booking to the swimming provider. Schools will still need to make a booking directly with the pool/facility.

    How to submit a swimming package

    Schools can select swimming in the same way they select other sports from the sports listing in the Sporting Schools Booking System, but do not need to add groups or the dates and times of individual sessions.

    Coach and teacher delivered swimming packages are available to be selected and schools are asked to provide the following:

    • Total participant numbers
    • Facility name
    • Facility contact phone number
    • Facility email address
    • Facility street address
    • Program start date

    For schools booking teacher delivered packages, we also require details of the nominated teacher and evidence of their WWCC or qualification as with the other partner sport teacher delivered packages.
