high impact education

SALT facilitate highly interactive and engaging education, culture, and leadership training programs into local grass-roots sporting clubs. 

These programs are designed to create conversations and to help people to consider the impact their decisions have on their life and on the lives of others.

We do this through our live quiz web platform, that provides anonymous real-time feedback via participants’ smartphone devices. This instant feedback facilitates meaningful discussions that are often very raw and highly relevant because they are based upon the actual issues and opinions of those in the room.

Junior Sessions

Stand Your Ground

Ages 10-13 boys and girls
Designed for boys and girls who are about to enter a time of life in which there is often significant pressure to experiment with negative risk-taking behaviour. This session aims to provide young people with a useful tool kit to help them resist this pressure and to respond confidently.

Healthy Masculinity

Ages 14-17 boys
Australian men have accepted a limited and often negative impression of what it is to be a man. This course challenges young men to become strong men of character. Topics include: anger, addictions, popularity, respect and reputation, attitudes towards women, emotional intelligence, being authentic, playing on the edge, having your mate’s back, and leaving a legacy.


Ages 14-17 girls
Designed to help girls overcome an often accepted and narrow definition of what it means to be a girl. Girls are encouraged to identify their character strengths and to use their strengths to reach their potential. Girls are empowered to critically evaluate the messages of society and to expect to be defined by their values and character, rather than by the way that they look.

Team First Leadership

Ages 15-19 boys and girls
Studies show that sports people have significant influence, no matter their age. This course explores the power of sportspeople to apply the strengths they develop in sport to life off the field. In sport, everyone leads at times during a game or competition. The same applies in life – at times we are all required to lead. A good leader is values driven and consistent. They develop strong relationships, lead by example, demonstrate humility, hold others accountable and are empowering.

Wellbeing & Mental Health

Ages 15 -19 single gender sessions preferred
This session provides participants with an understanding of anxiety and depression as well as some positive mental health habits that everyone can apply. Players discuss the importance of having real conversations and the need to reduce the stigma that remains around mental health issues. They are encouraged to ask good questions of their mates and to be open and honest about how they are coping, thereby becoming more aware of support structures available. Players are provided with take-home links to further information from peak mental health bodies as well as appropriate support services.

Equality is the Game

Ages 15-19 boys and girls
This session tackles the issue of gender equality, racial equality, sexual equality (LGBTIQA+), respect and inclusion. At a time in life when young teenagers can be a little insecure and tribal, they are challenged to widen their scope of understanding of how other people live and contribute to our society through their diversity.

Drugs and Alcohol

Ages 15– 19 boys and girls - single gender sessions preferred
This course motivates young people to have a game plan for life that includes a strategy for dealing with alcohol and drugs when inevitably they will be confronted with having to make a decision to accept or reject their use. Participants are warned about the dangers of drugs and alcohol but the focus is largely on filling their lives with so many positive pursuits, that they negate the need for artificial and inferior alternatives like alcohol and other drugs. The power of a positive peer group is strongly emphasised.

Wellbeing Managers’ Training

For Team Managers or Wellbeing Managers
This is a 90-minute online training session for Team Managers or Wellbeing Managers. It is designed so that every team in a junior club has an adult who manages the wellbeing and mental health initiatives for that team. This person is trained to watch, listen, and ask good questions. They are then trained to follow up any concerns with the correct protocols. They are also proactive, ensuring that the club environment is a mentally and socially safe and supportive environment for every child.

Positive Parenting

For parents
This course starts with the premise that sport is about life, life is not about sport. Many of our children form too much of their identities around their sporting talents and achievements, rather than the character strengths and the values they demonstrate. Parents are challenged in regard to their conduct at junior sporting matches. They are also provided with fantastic tools to use sport to prepare their children to be strong, caring, capable and successful adults.

Positive Coaching

Coaches & Team Managers
Times have changed and so have young people. The old fashioned and overused half-time spray just doesn’t cut it anymore. Positive coaching has been proven to elicit greater motivation, resilience, enjoyment, and results for everyone involved. Discover a new way of coaching that makes all the difference by increasing enjoyment, engagement, relationships and even performance.

Senior Sessions

Club Wellbeing Team

Develop a team to promote wellbeing and mental health
This course is designed for the participants to be the eyes, ears and heart of well-being and mental health in the club. The CWT is made up of three to six people who are well known, trusted, wise and approachable. They are caring and perceptive. They are happy to approach people and have a conversation to see how people are coping.

Equality is the Game

How to tackle gender, racial and sexual equality
This session tackles the issue of gender equality, racial equality, sexual equality (LGBQTI+), respect and inclusion. It does not point the finger at men as being the problem, but positively motivates men to be part of the solution in creating equality and inclusion, firstly in our sporting clubs and secondly in the wider community. We explore ways to empower sporting communities to be the examples when it comes to respect, fairness, and equality.

Drugs and Alcohol

How to manage drugs & alcohol as a Club with Heart
Traditionally many sporting clubs have relied on alcohol sales to generate club revenue and have sometimes promoted heavy drinking. We also know that heavy alcohol use often leads to illicit drug use. This module explores the dangers of heavy alcohol use and drug abuse. It asks, ‘What kind of club do you want to be?’ ‘What kind of influence do you want to have on the kids coming up?’ ‘What reputation do you want in the community?’ ‘Where do drugs and alcohol fit into all this?’ ‘How can we create an environment that supports anyone dealing with a drug or alcohol issue while keeping the club healthy and drug free?’

Wellbeing & Mental Health

Gain an understanding of anxiety, depression & health habits
This session is designed to give participants an understanding of anxiety and depression and provides them with positive mental health habits for life. It educates participants about the importance of having ‘real conversations’ and aims to reduce the stigma that remains around mental health issues. Participants are encouraged to ask good questions of their friends and to be open and honest about how they are coping and gain a better understanding of support structures available.

Clubs with Heart – Whole of Club version

A new ERA of Education, Responsibility & Accountability
This is the condensed version of the 6 session webinar series. It outlines how we create a new ERA in our clubs through Education, Responsibility and Accountability. Clubs with Heart aim to be highly competitive, however, they also create a community of care, respect, courage, and resilience. This session focusses on creating a story for which your club is known, addressing the barriers that hold you back, building the knowledge, structures, leaders, and behaviours required.
