Sporting Schools offers opportunities for coaching providers wanting to help increase children’s participation in sport.

Opportunities include:

  • Access to national sporting organisation (NSO) products, resources and equipment
  • Access to NSO coach accreditation courses and a range of training and development opportunities
  • Access to the Sporting Schools booking system to manage booking requests
  • Access to a school network involving over 5,760 schools and 860,000 children
  • Increased presence in the local community

Coaching providers are organisations that provide coaching services on behalf of a national sporting organisation (NSO) within the Sporting Schools program.

Coaching providers generally manage booking requests made by schools and have a workforce of various size and reach. Their coach workforce must meet the coach requirements for each nominated sport.


Organisations wanting to deliver Sporting Schools programs need to register directly with a national sporting organisation (NSO) as a coaching provider.
