These partnerships support SSV's Strategic Directions 2020 to 2030 including providing more sporting opportunities to more Victorian students whilst also supporting our partners in connecting with more schools, teachers, and students.
SSV would like to thank these partners for their continued investment into Victorian school sport.
Kipp Kauffman, Executive General Manager – Sport, AusCycling:
"'School cycling has been a popular feature on the Victorian calendar for all disciplines of cycling for many years. AusCycling are looking forward to continuing to provide opportunities for schools to experience road, BMX & mountain bike racing through our partnership with School Sport Victoria."
Dave Hunsdale, CEO, Diving Victoria:
"Diving Victoria has enjoyed a strong and innovative relationship with SSV, which has introduced countless students to our unique sport. To affirm our partnership with SSV with a new agreement has been an easy decision to make as they form an integral part of our organisation's strategic direction.
We can't wait to engage with more Victorian students in the years ahead, as they take on the challenge of one of the world's most exciting sports."
Andrew Skillern, CEO, Hockey Victoria:
'"Hockey Victoria is delighted to continue our partnership we have with SSV. Like so many community sports in Victoria, our relationship with SSV is one of the pathways to introduce hockey to students across the state.
Sport in schools is also of critical importance to students becoming more active and healthier and supports their mental health. We look forward to offering more of these opportunities to Victorian students with the support of SSV."
Paul Vear, General Manager - Squash & Racquetball Victoria
"Our partnership with School Sport Victoria has been very beneficial for our two sports of Racquetball for primary school students, and Squash for secondary school students across Victoria for many years.
Squash and Racquetball Victoria is delighted to be expanding our partnership agreement with School Sport Victoria which will create an even far wider visibility for both our sports throughout Victorian schools and enable us to engage with a greater number of students and teachers."
