Sporting Schools

Sporting Schools

Sporting Schools is an Australian Government initiative designed to help schools increase children’s participation in sport and connect them with community sport opportunities.

The Basketball Tasmania Sporting Schools program is based on Basketball Australia’s junior program: Ford Aussie Hoops. It is focussed on delivering fun and engaging sessions where students grow their skills and confidence together.

Our programs are flexible to each school’s needs and are inclusive to students of all abilities.

Basketball Tasmania can facilitate either teacher delivered or coach delivered sessions.

If a coach is requested, Basketball Tasmania will send one of our coaches to deliver a high quality, fun, and inclusive program.

If you would prefer a teacher delivered program, then we will send some coaching resources to help up-skill your staff.

Schools can apply for funding to request programs in many different sports, including basketball.

How to apply for funding:

  • Visit to apply for funding
  • If you are successful, you can log into sporting schools and select a Basketball Tasmania program.
  • Basketball Tasmania staff will be in contact with you to organise your sessions.
