Alpine active living

Gateway Health, Alpine Shire Council and Alpine Health recently delivered the Alpine Active Living Mapping Project. The project focus was to find out what opportunities exist to support the population to be physically active in the Alpine Shire. You can find out what they discovered and recommended here.

Sport North East is partnering with the group to help deliver the recommendations in the Alpine Shire, including:

  • Physical Activity policy development
  • Walking and cycling path improvements
  • Free and family-oriented activity promotion and development (e.g. Sport North East’s School Holiday Program)
  • Promotion and education of existing events and facilities
  • Support for informal recreation opportunities and multiple-use sporting facilities
  • Support for building healthy environments in sports clubs and workplaces

Sport North East is excited to help create more opportunities for sport and active recreation in the Alpine Shire.

Inclusion Awareness Workshop

Do you want to learn how to make your club’s activities more inclusive? This workshop is predominantly being run for the Gymnastics staff and personnel from Moyhu and Wangaratta YMCA clubs, but any other interested individuals or sports in the local area are welcome to attend as well. Much of the information is transferable across all sports.

Gymnastics Victoria’s 2 hour Inclusion Awareness workshop is ideal for upskilling coaches, administrators and club personnel in supporting people with a disability to participate in Gymnastics and other sport and recreation opportunities. This workshop also explores the inclusion of other underrepresented groups in the community, including CALD communities, indigenous Australians and older adults.

This interactive workshops explores discrimination, the skills and qualities of an inclusive coach, communicating with people with disabilities and modifying gymnastics activities so that everyone can participate and enjoy a positive experience in sport.
