VOC Vision and Mission
The Victorian Olympic Council represents the Olympic Movement throughout Victoria.
We create opportunities to share in the ideals and aspirations of the Olympic athlete through participation in Olympic experiences, education programs, volunteering and fundraising activities in support of the Australian Olympic Team.
We are committed to raising funds for the Australian Olympic Team and educating the Victorian community about the principles of Olympism.
