AHEAD OF THE GAME

What is ‘Ahead of the Game’?

Ahead of the Game is a newly developed program to improve youth mental health through community sport. It targets adolescent male mental health by engaging with the whole community around the local sports club.

It involves a series of different programs which have been designed with input from young male athletes, coaches, and families in the Illawarra region.

Want to get involved?

We are currently recruiting sports clubs in the Illawarra/Shoalhaven region to participate in a research study of how Ahead of the Game can help local clubs to improve mental health knowledge and to prevent or reduce the impact of mental health problems in adolescent males.

Who can enrol?

Ahead of the Game is now available to local sports clubs across several sporting codes, for adolescent males aged 12-17 years.
