Triathlon NSW are proud to announce a partnership with Wests Tigers Rugby League Football Club as part of the new Triathlon NSW initiative, Community Sports Link Program. This collaboration arises from a shared commitment to raising awareness of the positive effect that active participation in sport can play on an individual’s physical and mental wellbeing.
This Community Sports Link Program Partnership with Wests Tigers will encourage regular participation in physical activity to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of communities throughout NSW.
Increased participation as a result of the Program will not only have positive health effects on individual but also communities both socially and economically. The cost of physical inactivity to the Australian economy is $13.8 billion per year. This includes healthcare, productivity and mortality costs. National guidelines recommend 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity most days as the minimum requirement for good health. Triathlon clubs can provide an important social structure within the community encouraging physical activity whilst promoting social connectedness.
"The Community Sports Link Program is an incredibly exciting initiative for Triathlon in NSW and we are delighted to join forces with Wests Tigers in our pursuit of raising awareness around the importance an active lifestyle can play on an individual’s physical and mental wellbeing. The values of Triathlon NSW and Wests Tigers are closely aligned as we are both passionate supporters of implementing healthy living, community belonging and respect through sport," said Triathlon NSW CEO Phil Dally.
We look forward to collaborating with Wests Tigers on initiatives that will strive to educate and motivate communities all around NSW to get up and get active
