In 2019 ManageSport was successful in receiving a seed funding grant from ClubsNSW (Your Local Club) to develop and run school based workshops on developing personal resilience and integrity. The program is called BOUNCEuP- A sport approach to Resilience, an interactive education workshop to support school communities in the area of wellbeing and resilience training. Our workshops, tools and resources all align with the NSW Primary and Secondary PDHPE propositions, Year 11 Life Ready Course outcomes and the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework.

Due to the current environment under COVID-19 we have replaced our face to face workshops as a Webinar series for both Primary and Secondary student audiences. 

In addition to this as an ongoing resource, teachers in schools and upper secondary students are also offered access to the online BOUNCEuP- A Sport Approach to Resilience e-Therapy Guide. The BOUNCEuP e-Therapy Guide (online training) is a resource that teachers can access to enhance their own knowledge and skills in resilience, in order to support their own wellbeing and that of their students. The online training package can provide 1-2 hours of teacher identified hours for NESA Accreditation (Standard 4.1.2, 4.4.2, 6.2.2, 6.4.2, 7.2.2).

Why is it so important to take proactive measures to improve resilience in young people and those working with young people?

a. 1 in 4 adolescents have a mental illness
b. 1 in 5 adults will experience mental ill-health in any one year
c. 65% of adolescents do not seek help for mental illness

We use a framework and around the word GRIT that is sometimes used to explain Resilience. In the context of this Webinar

G stands for- Getting back on your Bike (coping with difficult situations / events)
R stands for- Reflect on your Strengths (Getting picked fo the team)
I stands for- Improve your thinking / feeling ( Self talk)
T stands for – Training & Practice (Taking action to promote and then maintain Resilience).

To get fitter or better at sport and exercise you have to train and practice. We have taken this proactive and preventative approach in developing this workshop and program and will use some sport/exercise terms and examples to help students learn and digest the information provided, including GRIT.

The workshop learning objectives are broken down into five (5) unit topics:

Topic 1: Introduction and what is resilience?
Topic 2 : Knowing Yourself (getting picked for the team)
Topic 3: Falling off your bike (Coping with difficult situations)
Topic 4: Training (Taking action to promote resilience)
Topic 5: Practice (Maintaining your resilience)

Just like your body, your mind can be trained and improved.
