Clubs with Heart was established by SALT (Sport and Life Training), which is a for-purpose, not-for-profit, health education charity.
Our team is dedicated to creating sporting clubs and team environments that cater for both the competitive and personal development needs of young people through to older adults.
Our vision is to create ‘Clubs with Heart’ right across Australia.
These will be club environments that provide and promote:
We understand the importance and impact of sporting clubs – they are often the heart and soul of their communities. They bring together people that share a passion to excel and develop.
We aim to capitalise on the passion for excellence and development that exists in all types of sporting clubs – by providing the tools, systems and education that encourages personal growth, positive life choices and proactive care of others.
Our education courses facilitate openness and broader acceptance of clubs playing a key role in improving mental health and overall wellness.
We see our role as preventing behaviours that can contribute to languishing mental health, but additionally, we aim to empower people to flourish and thrive and achieve their absolute potential in life.
SALT has a strong and developing team of 20+ facilitators, a growing number of program funding partners, as well as the support of many highly respected organisations. SALT’s vast experience in sporting clubs has helped inform the development and delivery of powerful and effective programs that are changing and saving lives. SALT’s mission is to help clubs to develop the environments within which children and adults work together with a united purpose to develop communities of care.
Measuring the progress and impact of Clubs with Heart at a club level is a critical component of our program.
Keeping tabs on progress is both motivating and rewarding, and helps all parties to maintain forward momentum for ongoing change and improvement.
The Clubs with Heart measurement system is managed by SocialSuite. At the beginning of the process, we capture a range of data points as a baseline, that serve as a reality check of your club culture before we start.
The Clubs with Heart measurement process addresses 4 key areas of club performance (knowledge, skills, structure and culture), against which we have assigned 18 questions as the basis of successful measurement across all clubs.
Clubs are then asked to revisit the same questions at 6 months, 12 months and on an ongoing basis for as long as your club remains involved in the program. The outcomes of this measurement process will inform your next steps, provide confidence in what you are doing and shape the narrative of your club becoming a Club with Heart with sponsors, players, administrators and your community.
Every Community, Every Club, Everyone.
Become a Club with Heart over the course of 8 Webinars, where key people in your club will learn a new blueprint for the future of your club.
