Tackle Your Feelings Program

Tackle Your Feelings (TYF) is a training program designed for local clubs. It strives to improve understanding and awareness of mental health as well as build skills within our coaches to foster an environment where athletes are supported to effectively manage their emotions.

The program aims to provide community coaches with the tools to understand, recognise and manage signs of mental health.

The TYF program is presented by the AFL Coaches Association and the AFL Players’ Association and is funded by Zurich Australia through it’s charity arm, the Z-Zurich Foundation. It s completely free for community clubs and coaches.

St Mary’s is thrilled to announce that we have the opportunity to become 1 of 25 TYF accredited clubs throughout Australia. To do this we require all coaches (Football & Netball) from each team to attend the workshop on April 6. Anyone else from within the club who wishes to complete the program is more than welcome.

DATE – April 6 2020

TIME – 6.00pm – 8.00pm

VENUE – Deakin Cats Centre Geelong

We are committing to this because mental health is vital to a healthy community and we want our sporting club to be a safe space where people feel comfortable to connect with others and be at their best
