Sports School Holiday Pathways Program

“The Sporting Kids School Holiday program is designed to get kids active and give them a chance to sample a wide variety of sports in a fun action packed two hour session which is all absolutely FREE.

Local sporting clubs host and run a 2 hour session, giving the club the chance to promote and showcase their club facilities and programs they have on offer. Sports clubs that have been involved in the program include; City Colts Cricket Club, Wangaratta Lawn Bowls Club, Wangaratta Golf Club, Wangaratta Little Athletics Club, Acrobatics, Wangaratta Squash & Racquetball Club.

Sport North East Project Coordinator Zac Hedin; ‘We were really happy with how the first two programs have run, with well over 100 kids participating and are looking forward to continuing the program over summer and expanding to the Wodonga area.’

‘We’re excited about the potential this program has to not only benefit local kids in terms of getting outside and getting more physically active but also the potential the program has to assist sports clubs to increase awareness of their club and programs but ultimately increase membership or participation rates.’

If your sports club is interested in hosting a session or your child in interested in participating please contact Zac Hedin on (03) 5721 0250 or email zac.hedin@thecentre.vic.edu.au.


Spring Into Touch (Lunchtime Touch Football)

Sport North East recently launched a new weekly social lunchtime Touch Football competition, Spring into Touch. This competition is free to enter and everyone is welcome – people of all ages, gender, ability (or not!) and fitness level, and no skill or knowledge of the game required.

The competition commenced on Wednesday 26 Oct at 12:20pm at Merriwa Park with participants from a number of different organisations around the area. All participants were newcomers to the sport and had a great time with lots of laughs. Through the program we hope that members of the community will get involved and become more active in their lunch break.

According to Celia Piesse Sport North East Project Coordinator ‘Research shows that there is a clear relationship between physical activity and health. By improving the health status of employees, we hope that employers will see increased productivity, improved teamwork, office cohesion, and reduced sick leave days. We encourage business owners, managers and human resource departments to get involved and promote Spring into Touch to their employees.’

The program will run for six weeks with everyone welcome to attend, whether it be to play, referee or just cheer on friends.
