We're partnering with VicHealth to support the health and wellbeing of young people!

VicHealth is giving 180 local ideas a JumpStart! In creating vibrant, active and connected communities of young people, all across the state, from a share of more than $3.5 million.

And ours is one of them!

Valley Sport is excited to announce that we will be delivering free inclusive coaching courses to local sporting coaches and volunteers across the region. But wait that’s not all.

We’re thrilled to be launching an exciting new sports program for people aged 5-12 on the Autism Spectrum. The new program will support kids to be introduced to the sport in a way that suits their needs, with an aim to transition into ongoing participation.

What other kinds of programs are funded?

Each program will do its part in building healthier communities, overflowing with sport, active play, art and food. This includes projects that:

  • Make sport environment more welcoming and inclusive to increase participation 
  • Introduce people to social and active recreation 
  • Connect people through arts, cultural and play-based activities 
  • Learn about their local food system and encouraging connection through food 

All of this and MUCH more, to support the health and wellbeing of Victoria’s young people.
