School Sport Program

The School Sport Program provides funding to Queensland School Sport State Level Organisations (SLO) to plan and deliver projects that increase the quality and quantity of participation across two priority areas:

  • representative school pathways.
  • sport participation in school.

There is also an additional focus on the inclusion of people with disability within the school sport system.

The School Sport Program is the latest initiative delivered under the Activate! Queensland 2019–2029 Strategy, which aims to support an active industry growing in capability to meet the needs of Queenslanders.

Funding recipients

We’re providing over $2.4 million to 20 SLOs under the School Sport Program. The funding will enhance the quality and quantity of school sport performance pathways and create positive participation experiences to increase participation opportunities for Queensland students, including people with disability and emerging athletes, coaches and officials.

If your organisation receives funding, you will need to appropriately acknowledge the Queensland Government in any promotion of the projects.
