The Department of Education and Training is continuing to monitor and act on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer and the Department of Health in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19).


Interschool sport

Interschool sport is permitted for schools in regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.

School Sport Victoria has postponed and rescheduled a number of interschool sport events (District/Division/Region/State Championships). Where it is not possible to reschedule events, events may be cancelled.

The status of events, including revised dates, are being updated on the events page on the SSV website.

School Sport Victoria recognises that due to the number of events to be rescheduled, there may be some events scheduled on the same day.

A range of health and safety measures will be put in place for interschool sport events and competitions in line with current restrictions, including participant numbers and venue capacity.


Team Vic

Team Vic selection trials and training are being planned to resume.

School Sport Victoria will communicate directly with those who have registered to trial or selected in teams to advise of revised dates, when they become available.

School Sport Victoria is committed to providing a Team Vic program for Victorian students in 2021. Student registrations for selection trials remain open for a number of sports. School Sport Victoria will also continue with the announcement of Team Vic teams. For further details, please visit the Team Vic page of this website. 

School Sport Victoria is continuing to work through opportunities for the Team Vic program for 2021, and will provide direct communication to those parents and students that are selected in Team Vic teams as these options are finalised.

Please continue to keep updated through your school and by checking School Sport Victoria communication via our website (www.ssv.vic.edu.au), Facebook (School Sport Victoria), and Twitter (@SchoolSportVic).
