We understand that for many of you who love playing sport – the usual opportunities to do so through school and community clubs and programs are not available at this time.
However, this is a time to be creative and find new ways to keep being active and practice your sporting skills.
Here's some information which can help you do this:

Regular physical activity is important for physical and mental wellbeing – for you and your children.
Many of the ways in which we are usually active – including organised sport – may not be available to us at this time.
For children and young people, this is particularly the case, as school and community sport are currently not available.
With many families spending most of their time at home, there are a range of ways to continue being active and practice your sporting skills.
Here is some information to support you and your children during this period:
