Message from Council Chair

School sport throughout Australia is back on track after the pandemic interruptions and no group is more delighted than the ACT School Sport Council.  Establishing pathways for ACT students to represent their schools, regions, territory and potentially Australia, is why we do what we do.  School Sport ACT is honoured to facilitate these opportunities for the almost 60,000 students across the ACT and is nationally recognised as one of the most effective and efficient organisations delivering school sport in Australia.

The ACT office staff are motivated and committed to their roles.  Our Executive Officer Liz Yuen continues to be a resource for all involved in School Sport, here in the ACT as well as the other states and territories.   We are fortunate to have strong leadership, combined with a passion for school sport, supporting the students, teachers, parents and principals in the delivery of our representative teams.  

We now have excellent working relationships with several of the local community sporting organisations who often assist by providing coaching expertise and working with SSACT to ensure our students are provided with the best opportunity for growth when involved with our programs.  These relationships are critical to ensure we maximise the opportunities for growth and development for our ACT students.

The past 3 years have seen interrupted schedules and competition opportunities; however we now have a clear pathway ahead.   

I wish all our staff and stakeholders an exciting 2023.
