School Sport Victoria (SSV) supports the right of all students to access the same opportunities to school sport as their peers. All schools and school sporting structures have a legal and a moral obligation to provide the same access, where appropriate, to school sport for all students regardless of gender identity, sex, disability, race or culture.
All students benefit socially, emotionally and physically by participating in sport and evidence shows that academic results improve when students actively participate in sport. Participation in school sport can be an introduction to ongoing participation in sport outside of, and after, a student leaves school. This can have lifelong positive mental and physical health outcomes.
