"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.

Community Group Strength and Balance Classes for older people 

‘Live stronger for longer’ is a National initiative that has bought a range of NZ Health Agencies together to create a falls and fractures Network. Everyone is working together to support older people to stay independent, injury free and reduce harm from falls. www.livestronger.org.nz is an easy to navigate website designed for and by older people with a range of information about this initiative.

Sport Wellington is excited to have been appointed lead agency for Community Group Strength and Balance. Our role is to create and grow access to strength and balance classes; as one of the best and easiest ways to avoid falling is to build your core strength.

We are working across Capital and Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa DHB areas.

We will be working closely with the existing classes in our community that already promote strength and balance for older people; to support them to become approved Community Group Strength and Balance Classes.  We are also interesting in supporting new initiatives and communities to develop classes.

Click here for more info on how Sport Wellington can support you.

As classes become approved their information will be added to www.livestronger.org.nz in order to be accessible to people in the community.

Please contact Jes for more information or if you wish to be involved.

Check it out!

We’re proud to support the release of a new website for older New Zealanders. The new livestronger.org.nz site is an easy to navigate site designed by older people for older people, with a focus on reducing the incidence and severity of falls and fractures.

It has an accessible layout, vibrant and authentic images of older New Zealanders, and the navigation is simple. It’s compatible with all devices, including smart phones, tablets and laptops. 

Livestronger.org.nz brings together people, organisations, research and clinical practice to support older people to live stronger for longer. It captures the essence of positive ageing, and celebrates independence. As agencies add information to the site, and exercise providers confirm start dates for approved community group strength and balance classes, it will become a go to for people who love their independence. 

We’re proud to support this site and endorse the advice it contains. We encourage you to take a look around.
