Sporting Peer Program

Our Sporting Peer Program supports sport and recreational groups to establish and sustain a peer program that enhances coaching and life skills of its participants.

The Peer Program matches a Junior Coach, from the ages of 11-12 years and up, with a team for a season. Under the guidance of a Senior Club Coach the Junior Coaches learn skills for coaching and life.

The Program:

  • keeps kids connected to community and contributes to the prevention and early intervention of mental wellbeing challenges.
  • supports the development of personal skills important to a young person’s role within their sporting setting and in life.
  • supports existing coaches and leaders to mentor younger club members to develop skills in coaching and in life.
  • develops and/or enhances a sustainable model of coaching/leading at sport settings
