Participation in sport provides children with the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to develop and maintain their physical, mental, social and emotional health.
Sport promotes the potential for lifelong participation in physical activity through the development of motor skills, movement competence and health-related physical fitness.
Engaging in sport provides children with a sense of community and social connectedness, which are vital components of overall wellbeing.
Representative School Sport allows students to foster connections with their own school, other schools and the broader community.
Representative School Sport is a program of sporting competitions run across a network of affiliated state and non-state schools in 12 School Sport Regions.
Staff delivering the program are located in Regional School Sport offices within each of the School Sport Regions.
