The School Sport Unit provides carefully planned, adaptable and enjoyable physical activity experiences for all students in NSW public schools.
Parents, teachers, and students can browse Schools Sports Associations to find representative sport events and results for students aged 8 to 19 years old.
Swimming and water safety
Teachers and parents/carers can find information on school swimming and water safety programs and learning resources.
Premier’s Sporting Challenge
To promote increased participation in sport and physical activity, leading to healthier, more
active lifestyles, the Premier's Sporting Challenge (PSC) is a multi-faceted program offering a
range of initiatives to students and teachers across the state.
The PSC aims to get more students and
staff more active, more often.
Disability and inclusion
Opportunities for students with disabilities to get involved in sports are available at various levels throughout the school sport structure, from participation to elite. The participatory (or provisional) level does not require classification, however, if an athlete wishes to compete at a regional, state, national or international level, they will need to gain classification through the appropriate sporting organisation.
Policy and guidelines
Teachers and school leaders can find advice, support and compliance resources for implementing high quality and safe sport and physical activities for students.
Teacher resource hub
Teachers can find professional learning workshops, eLearning courses as well as teaching and learning resources to support the implementation of quality sport and physical activity programs.
