This publication summarises the findings from the evaluation of the Out of School Hours Sports Program. The evaluation was undertaken by the School of Human Movement and Sport Sciences at the University of Ballarat in 2005. Prepared by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and VicHealth, the report is available so that those involved in school sport and recreation programs at the local level can give their programs every chance of success.

Following the successful pilot of the Out Of School Hours Sports Program, the ASC launched the Active After-School Communities program - a major component of the Australian Government’s Building a Healthy, Active Australia package, aimed at tackling the growing problem of declining physical activity and poor eating habits of Australian children.
