For sporting groups
Butterfly prevention programs for sporting groups
Participating in sports can be great for a child’s physical and mental health. But sometimes being on a team, or in a sport where there is a strong focus on performance, appearance, diet and weight requirements can lead to body dissatisfaction, disordered eating or even an eating disorder.
As trusted experts in the field of body image and eating disorders, we offer programs to sporting groups — young people, their parents and coaching and support staff — which are designed to educate, empower and enable help-seeking. We also tailor programs for national and state-based sporting organisations and their communities.
Presentations for young people
We offer presentations especially designed for young athletes and players. These talks sit within our broader range of engaging, educational and age-appropriate sessions for young people.
Coaching and support staff workshops
Coaching and support staff are influential role models to young Australians involved in sports. You’re in a strong position to positively influence how young people identify with their bodies.
Body Kind Schools
Body Kind Schools is for everyone! It’s a free campaign that runs in September every year, and invites all Australians working in primary and secondary schools, as well as other youth and community organisations, to come together to celebrate diversity and build body confidence in young people.
National and state-based community engagement programs
This program aims to build strong and positive working relationships with National Sporting Organisations and State Sporting Organisations through the provision of tailored prevention and early intervention activities, education and referral pathways.
- Focuses on young people’s wellbeing in all sports, but particularly within a higher risk activity.
- Delivers positive and evidence-based information about body image and healthy behaviours in relation to eating and training.
- Is supportive of positive culture change within sports.
