Embrace Sport

If you’re involved in sporting clubs or organisations that work with young people, you’ve come to the right place! Through our Activate by Embrace Kids initiative (formerly Embrace Sport), we’re developing a game plan for better body image in sport – and we would love to get the message out in as many ways as we can to help all kids Embrace their bodies for life.

Change starts right here, with the Activate Playbook and Masterclass. These resources are a simple, practical guide to building better body image in community sport. By making sporting environments more supportive, welcoming and inclusive for young people, they are more likely to keep playing the sport they love for longer.

These resources are for all people involved in sport and physical environments, from parents and volunteers to club officials and coaches. Have a look, and most importantly – pass them on to others!

A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO BUILDING BETTER BODY IMAGE IN COMMUNITY SPORT

The Activate by Embrace Kids resources are designed to promote better body image within community sports across Australia. They specifically aim to support parents, coaches and administrators to create sporting club cultures to prevent young people dropping out of sports and other physical activity because they feel judgement, shame and embarrassment about their bodies within their sport.

The Activate Masterclass is hosted by former Olympic swimmer Libby Trickett and features sports lovers from around Australia. It brings together practical, evidence-based advice and real-world examples to show clubs how they can make simple changes to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all bodies.

The Activate Playbook is based on research in the area of body image, sport and physical activity, drawn together by Dr Angela Hinz, Lecturer at the University of the Sunshine Coast, and Dr Zali Yager, Adjunct Associate Professor at the Institute for Health and Sport at Victoria University.
