MORE INFORMATION FOR SPORTING ORGANISATIONS
We know you want to do the best for athletes, yet sometimes it's hard to do the specific work, and do it really well.
At Body Confident Collective we want to be able to support your Sporting Organisation to celebrate and support body confident juniors to Olympic athletes.
We want to help you shape the future of your sporting organisation for the better.
We have what you need to have a positive body image impact in your sporting organisation
More and more athletes are feeling empowered to come forward with their own stories and lived experiences in sport. We want these athletes to be heard and we want sporting culture to change and evolve to support athletes and their body image for the better.
Body Confident Collective can provide specialised consulting for all organisational needs to shape positive body image for the future generations of athletes.
Get in contact and we can arrange a meeting to determine future directions.
COURSES, WORKSHOPS AND WEBINARS
We gather the best evidence relating to body image and translate it into easy to understand and implement training for specific sporting groups. Our Body Confident Collective Coach Training is a great example of a self-paced and online training course that we have developed to shape sporting cultures for the better.
We have the capacity and the passion to develop specific body image training courses, workshops or webinars for your sporting organisations needs.
GUIDELINE AND POLICY DEVELOPMENT
Start here with our FREE Body Confident Sport Guidelines. We understand that each and every sport has their own unique body image needs and support. We would love for you to take up and implement our Body Confident Sport Guidelines.
Further to this we are able to develop your own sport specific version, provide consultation about how to best implement the guidelines, or provide resources and workshops that cater for your sporting community to best hear and take on these important messages.

She has worked at Boston Childrens Hospital, Harvard Medical School, The Victorian Institute of Sport, Essendon Football Club and has consulted broadly at a range of sporting clubs and organisations.
