Backyard Sports

You might need to get a bit creative, but in many situations, students (and parents and staff) will still be able to engage in sport while at home.
There are so many options, some depending on equipment available, but here are some examples to get you going.

    State/National Sporting Organisation at Home Programs

    These are the programs we are aware of but we are sure there are plenty more out there.
    Please email us any any other state or national sporting organisations with similar programs and we will regularly update our list.

    Sport Specific Skill Development

    This booklet is to support students, teachers and parents in developing students' sport specific skills and is open for use for any age group (R to 10).

      Online Officiating Courses

      A great opportunity for students to upskill themselves while developing their capabilities is through online officiating courses.

      Fitness Apps

      There are a number of apps which allow you to track your physical performance/development and to compare/compete with others in improving your cardiovascular endurance.
      Research which one suits you best to keep active.
