The programs are funded by the Department of Sport and Recreation. We have four objectives:
  1. Connect Olympians with the community to inspire participation in sport.
  2. Connect schools and students with local clubs to foster an ongoing relationship.
  3. Empower teachers with the tools needed to conduct the program with minimal support by the Victorian Olympic Council.
  4. Increase participation in sport.

Each program is conducted over the course of a day with the highlight being that students will be coached in their preferred sport by an Olympian. The sports are based on those that can be resourced at the host school. In the past we have offered any six of the following sports basketball, volleyball, athletics, table tennis, badminton, swimming, sailing, soccer, hockey and rowing. Once the sports are determined the VOC enlists the support of Olympians to coach and inspire the students.

During the day we engage local clubs to present to the students and recruit members through a local clubs expo, as well as deliver a session on the A.S.P.I.R.E Olympic values:
