There will be no Team Vic teams for 2020. School Sport Australia has announced that all Championships for 2020 are cancelled.

School Sport Victoria has communicated with those who have registered for Team Vic, to provide an update and advise on aspects such as refunds.

We encourage students to check out these ways to remain active and practice your sport skills during this time. This information includes messages from SSV Ambassadors, including elite athletes, who are sharing their ways to keep training over this period.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​School Sport Australia (SSA) present the Cross Country Championships on an annual basis.

School Sport Victoria enters one representative team in each of the following SSA Cross Country Championships:
  • 10-12 Years
  • 10-12 Years Multi Class

These championships offer gifted and talented students the opportunity to participate in higher levels of sporting competition against students from other Australian States and Territories.

Participation in a School Sport Victoria Team Vic state team is self funded.  As a guide, it may cost between $1,500-$2,000 to participate.  Costs may include uniforms, host state levies, flights, transport, accommodation and meals.  Costs will vary depending on the location of the Championship. 

10-12 Years and 10-12 Years Multi Class:

Students who wish to be considered for the Team Vic State Cross Country Team to participate in the SSA Cross Country National Championships will need to qualify at each SSV interschool level (district, division, region) to then be eligible to compete at the SSV State Cross Country Championships.  Selection for the Team Vic Team for the above two age groups is determined by individual performance at the SSV State Cross Country Championships. Details regarding the Team Vic Opportunity for this sport is listed in the Event Calendar on the right hand side of this page.

13-19 Years and 13-19 Years Multi Class:

School Sport Victoria does not enter a 13-19 Years and 13-19 Years Multi Class Cross Country individual team in the SSA Cross Country Championships.
