General Information

Division Nominations

Nominations are open now for AFL, soccer, basketball, and netball.  This year all nominations are to be done online through the School Sport Victoria website.

Age Groupings: What age group will I participate in?

For the purposes of all School Sport Victoria (SSV) events, including district events, a child’s age is determined by the age they are turning on their birthday, in the year of that event.

For example: If my birthday was on December 31 and I was turning 12 years old in 2015, I would be competing in the 12 year old age group for the entire year of 2015.

The table below provides an alternative explanation.

School Sport Victoria (SSV)

School Sport Victoria is the organisation that is responsible for representative sport in primary and secondary schools in Victoria.  This body sets down guidelines (such as the age groupings, cross country distances, etc) that schools use for events that act as trial events for SSV events, such as the athletics and cross country. The SSV is arranged in regions, divisions and districts.
