WEST GIPPSLAND FOOTBALL
NETBALL COMPETITION

Pubished on 18 May 2022
MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS ROUND

The Alex Scott & Staff West Gippsland Football Netball Competition with GippSport has an exciting partnership with the Tackle Your Feelings (TYF) mental health program in 2022.

Tackle Your Feelings is a free program delivered by a local psychologist, which aims to provide community coaches and support staff/volunteers with the tools to understand, recognise and manage their response to signs of mental health in their players.

The program was inspired by a mental health education developed for AFL professional coaches and players, consisting of a face-to-face presentation from a psychologist and additional online learning.

Tackle Your Feeling ambassadors Leon Cameron, Alastair Clarkson, Neville Jetta, Kara Antonio and Dylan Buckley also feature throughout the video content within the program.

Tackle Your Feelings is an initiative from the AFL Coaches Association, AFL Players’ Association and Zurich Insurance.

GippSport will facilitate Tackle Your Feelings sessions throughout the Gippsland during the 2022 football netball season and we invite your club to participate.

There’s also opportunities for clubs to become official Tackle Your Feelings Accredited Clubs, which makes clubs eligible for some exciting rewards.

If your club wishes to get involved please register your interest by contacting Gene at GippSport
