Athlete Speaker Program

Our athletes have triumphed in the most adverse circumstances and learnt valuable lessons in life which they can share with your school, corporate or community group.

The VIS is home to a huge stable of sports stars including Olympians, Paralympians and World Champion athletes. Many have extraordinary stories to share and, importantly, you can book these speakers at the most reasonable rates in Australia. Income received for speaking engagements is paid to the athletes to assist with their sporting endeavours.

Be Fit. Be Well. Program

Thanks to School Sport Victoria we are able to send our athletes to Victorian Government primary and secondary schools free of charge.

The Victorian Institute of Sport schools program was introduced on the back of the famous Moneghetti review of Physical and Sport Education in Victoria in the mid 1990s and has been running successfully for over two decades. 

Our athletes can stay on campus for up to one hour.

Their message to the students emphasises the link between physical activity and wellness. Key topics include motivation, resilience, goal setting, coping with pressure and health/nutrition.

Don't miss out.
