The Vodafone Warriors are again taking the ACC SportSmart message to schools this year. 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 can include this into their daily routines.
Delivered in an assembly format, the programme is rolled out when we are on the road throughout the country as well as at locations around Auckland. These school visits 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 to deliver the ACC SportSmart 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. ACC SportSmart 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.
