Olympic Education

A very important part of the SAOC's charter is the focus on education – both with the community and the school system. This is a means of diffusing to the public the spirit of the Olympic movement, its ideals and philosophy.

The SA Olympic Council also supports both Primary and Secondary Schools by assisting to arrange for Olympians to attend school speech nights, sports awards, school assemblies and general school visits throughout South Australia. Our Olympic athletes are seen as heroes by these children and act as wonderful role models for our future Olympic Champions.
