"For me, it's always been about value. How can I add value for my children and anyone I coach? The true key to success is that, whoever you coach, you add value in whichever community that they choose to walk in. For me that's been New Zealand Rugby, and now United States Baseball" 🏉⚾ Words of wisdom from Don Tricker this morning at our Sport Wellington Performance Hub Breakfast event.

An Active Family is a Healthy Family

 

Green Prescription (GRx) Active Families is a free programme that helps you and your children create a healthier lifestyle by becoming more active and learning about healthy eating.

Our team of Healthy Lifestyles Co-ordinators help your family to set goals and get involved in fun physical activities that you can enjoy together. 

Healthy eating advice will be offered and in certain areas, you have the chance to meet and have fun with other children and families who are also part of the programme at weekly activity sessions.

We want to support children and their families who are ready for change to be healthier and to have fun together. Active children have more energy, feel stronger, fitter and more confident, sleep better, and are able to concentrate and participate more fully in school activities and grow into healthier adults.
