How It Works

Each student will receive a free wristband that connects to the Active Bands® mobile app developed by Athletics Australia. The platform then rewards children, unlocking incentives as movement milestones are met.

Why Work Together?

Only 19% of Australian children aged 5 to 17 are meeting the recommended guidelines of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity a day. Athletics Australia, through Active Bands®, is taking a lead role in influencing and assisting Aussie kids to be more physically active. If you share this vision with us, we would love to work with you to achieve a real and measurable difference. It can easily integrate into your physical education programs and support efforts to increase physical literacy levels across the school community.
