SSV Student Leaders Program

School Sport Victoria (SSV) is on the hunt for students to join SSV's inaugural Student Leaders Group.

The aim of the Student Leaders Program will be to provide feedback and advice to School Sport Victoria to help guide and shape the future of school sport.

Topics covered by the group may include:

  • The design and development of new physical activity initiatives and programs in school sport
  • Making the school sport experience enjoyable and welcoming for all students
  • Knocking down the barriers to sport that are often experienced by students
  • Showing us how and telling us why Victorian students want to be engaged in school sport
  • Ensuring that a safe and enjoyable environment is provided for all students to participate in school sport regardless of their fitness, experience, or skill level.

The SSV Student Leaders Group will involve a 12-month commitment (throughout the 2022 school year) with twice a term, virtual group discussions led by two facilitators who have a background in Australian sport.  The program will give students the opportunity to get to know a pair of Australian sporting personalities and also build the confidence to speak, lead and provide feedback within an encouraging and welcoming environment.

SSV will select a group of up to 20 students ranging years 5 to 12, with students of all backgrounds, abilities, genders, and schools encouraged to apply.
