Be Fit. Be Well 

Thanks to School Sport Victoria we are able to connect our athletes to Victorian Government primary and secondary schools free of charge.

The Victorian Institute of Sport schools program was introduced on the back of the famous Moneghetti review of Physical and Sport Education in Victoria in the mid 1990s and has been running successfully for over two decades.

The athletes' message to the students emphasises the link between physical activity and wellness. Key topics include motivation, resilience, goal setting, coping with pressure and health/nutrition.

We offer both in-person visits to schools and virtual presentations.

Athlete and Expert Speaker Program

The VIS is home to a stable of sports stars including Olympians, Paralympians and World Champion athletes.

Many have extraordinary stories to share and, importantly, you can book these speakers at the most reasonable rates in Australia. Income received for speaking engagements is paid to the athletes to assist with their sporting endeavours.

Our experts help high-performance athletes to succeed through world-class coaching, management and support services. We are at the forefront of sports theory and practice – working across different types of sport, events and research areas as the main hub of knowledge for high performance sport in Victoria.

You can book one of our experts for a presentation to learn more about how they help develop Victorian elite athletes to become world best.
