In 2016 the Harvey Norman Community Warriors have introduced the ACC Everyday Athlete programme. The programme is designed to incorporate many of the important aspects of wellbeing that are vital to our professional athletes for top performance and also how our children – our Everyday Athletes can include this into their daily routines as well.
The programme is designed to be delivered in an assembly format and will be our programme for when we are on the road throughout the country as well as here in Auckland. These school visits will have a special focus on proper hydration, sleep and encouraging a strong sense of belonging.
Our ACC partnership means we are able to get around the country with the Harvey Norman Community Warriors to deliver the Everyday Athlete programme in schools throughout New Zealand providing an opportunity for kids to learn from some of New Zealand’s top athletes. Sport and physical activity is good for us, providing a wide range of benefits. Everyday Athlete is all about teaching kids how to do sport well, so they perform well, have fun and avoid injuries. We want to help set kids up with the knowledge and skills they need for life-long participation in sport and recreation.
