Why Active Bands®?
Mums and Dads, do you know that only one in five Aussie kids are meeting Australian Government physical activity guidelines? Yes, just 19% of Australian children aged 5 to 17 are completing at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity each day.
We all lead such busy lives and sometimes it's hard to think of ideas to keep your child active and having fun.
Now Active Bands®*is here to create a fun way for your kids to keep active and be rewarded.
Athletics Australia & Sport Australia
Active Bands® have been made possible with support from both Athletics Australia and Sport Australia, two organisations focused on the health and wellbeing of our Aussie kids. Using a combination of smart and engaging digital technology, Active Bands® allows parents, teachers, and coaches to create, record and track physical activity easily and flexibly.
How do Active Bands® Work?
Your child will need a very cool Active Bands wristband. It contains a unique identifier to connect to your smartphone. The wristband allows your child’s activity sessions to be recorded in the app.
Follow the easy-to-follow steps to create a profile for you and your child. As part of this your child can customise their very own avatar.
The app will show you how easy it is to scan the band to register and record activity as you and your child enjoy the Active Bands® Program while it tracks progress and earns the child digital rewards.
Every minute of activity along with intensity of activity converts to one measure, Active Points. These points accumulated determine the health of the child’s avatar. The more active your child is, the more points are collected. Your child will enjoy helping their avatar progress from level to level. 1,500 Active Points per day keeps the avatar healthy (and meets the Government guidelines).
There are heaps of fun activities in the app to select from. Parents can select from menus of Sport Skills and Active Games or create your own activities from within the dedicated Active Bands® app. Your child can complete activities anytime, anywhere, by themselves or with friends and family.
Participating coaches and teachers can set up their lessons and programs in the system and log each individual child’s participation, simply by scanning their band.
You will always be able to see how active your child has been in a given day, week, month, or year. It's great for goal setting and maintaining healthy activity levels. Each Active Bands® wristband is washable, and because they don’t have batteries, they don’t need to be recharged!
Why not join Aussie kids from across the country and be part of the Active Bands® revolution!
Get started by speaking to your school about registering for the program.
