Why Sport &
Research by Guthold et al. (2020, The Lancet) reported that
Australian young people (aged 11-17 years) ranked
140th least active out of 146 countries analysed.
VicHealth (2018) report that 92% of Australian 12-17 year-olds do not meet the Australian Physical Activity guidelines of
60 minutes of physical activity every day.
With almost 2 in 3 Australian adults (63%) and
1 in 4 Australian children (25%) overweight or obese and the cost of inactivity in Australia being calculated in 2013 as AUD$805M, the need to dissolve the barriers to sport participation is essential for a healthier Australia.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Youth Unemployment is 15.6% which is three times higher than compared to the current labour market.
At the end of 2020, one in three young people in Australia were unemployed or under-employed.
We believe that everyone has a skill to share
either on the pitch or in the workplace
& should have the opportunity to shine.
