IAAF Kids Athletics Upskilling Information:

Sporting Schools is a $160 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools increase children’s’ participation in sport and to connect children with community sporting opportunities.

In partnership with National Sporting Organisations (NSOs), like Athletics Australia, Sporting Schools assists the coordination of coaches and teachers to deliver sport before, during and after school hours.

Over 1,200 individual schools and 130,000 participants have already been part of this initiative through Athletics Australia.

The IAAF Kids' Athletics Course offers coaches the opportunity to be upskilled to be able to deliver the IAAF Kids' Athletics Program in the Sporting Schools Program. Coaches will be educated on the philosophy and aims of the program, as well as how to plan and progress activities.

The Sporting Schools Program provides Accredited Athletics Coaches an opportunity to receive paid employment as a casual employee with Athletics Australia and to deliver the IAAF Kids’ Athletics Program in primary schools across Australia. This is also a perfect opportunity for school teachers to get involved and deliver this program before, during or after school times.
