A fun way for any school community to rise to the challenge
of moving more.

Kids get a real picture of how much physical activity they’re actually doing.

Being in a school team doesn’t mean you always have to exercise together. Instead, it allows everyone to see each other’s activity, to encourage each other to move more. It could be towards a goal the team sets itself, or even an inter-class competition.

With Get Active Victoria school teammates can discover new and free stuff and it provides a great opportunity to stay connected whilst learning from home. It doesn’t matter how you get active, it all goes towards increasing the team total.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start a school team?

A teacher can start a team for their class, or their entire school:

  1. First, you need to join Get Active Victoria and select ‘Teacher’ or ‘Teacher & Parent’ under ‘My user type is?’; under ‘School’, add in your School’s name
  2. Finish joining up, then log in to the Get Active Victoria platform
  3. Head to TEAMS in the navigation bar
  4. Follow the steps: enter your team name, and click ‘Create Team’
  5. This generates a unique Team ID, which is the number you’ll send out to anyone (and everyone) in your class or school so that they can join your school team
How do kids join the school team?

Kids over 12 with an email address – or other teachers – can join up themselves. Otherwise a parent or teacher will need to create a profile for themselves first, then add a child or children to it as sub-users.

I’m over 12 and I have an email address:

  1. Join Get Active Victoria with your own information. Under ‘My user type is?’ select ‘Student’, then add in your School’s name
  2. After completing the process, log in to the Get Active Victoria platform, then visit TEAMS in the navigation bar
  3. Use your Team ID provided by your teacher to join your school team

I’m a parent creating a profile for my child/children:

  1. Join Get Active Victoria with your own information. Under ‘My user type is?’ select ‘Parent’
  2. On the next screen, click ‘Register family & friends’, then create a profile for your child, or children – you can have up to 50
  3. After completing this process, log in to the Get Active Victoria platform. You’ll find your name in the top right corner – use the arrow to change who you’re LOGGED IN AS. Select your child
  4. Finally, logged in as your child, head to TEAMS in the navigation bar and enter your School’s Team ID to join them up

I’m a teacher adding children to my own profile:

While we recommend children join themselves or with a parent, sometimes it’s necessary that a teacher include a child on their profile.

  1. Download and send parents/guardians the Get Active Victoria Consent Form
  2. Once you have consent, download the bulk upload spreadsheet
  3. Follow the examples in the spreadsheet to add in each student’s information – you can add up to 50 students
  4. Save the spreadsheet to your computer – it will save automatically in the correct file format (.csv)
  5. Send the file to getactive@sport.vic.gov.au
  6. Get Active Victoria will take care of the rest! We’ll register each student for you – they’ll be displayed as sub-users within your account
  7. Share each student’s username and password with them so they can log in at home
