SALT has been impacting clubs and lives for over six years, and has amassed a loyal group of advocates for the incredible work that has been done over this period. Clubs with Heart, while only a new brand, has resonated strongly with participants, as the following testimonials attest. If you or your club have had a positive experience with SALT or Clubs with Heart, we would love to share your testimonial so more clubs can benefit from our offerings.
"I am so proud this series of webinars has made Club officials and players of various ages take responsibility for their own future and that of the Club and want to be involved in the positive changes that will occur."
"Brilliant organisation - very excited to continue to be partners and look forward to sharing stories with everyone. We are really looking forward to it and have many interested parties already. We hope we can be a part of it and thank SALT for the opportunity.
Well, I’ve got to say, our crew is absolutely pumped about where this is heading. We have managed to secure such a great cross section of ages, experiences, and genders in this group - we’re all truly excited so thank you!!"
"A quick note to say a massive thank you. The Clubs With Heart session last night was truly inspirational and just what we needed as a club to remind us of what is important! Just LOVED the session so much, it has provided me with positive energy as we head to our AGM tonight, focused, and ready to take on 2022 and continue to build on everything amazing about our club and the people who call her home. Have a great day and thanks for making such a positive impact on people’s lives. Love your work!"
"Thanks for the session the other night. We think the series is going to be fantastic for our club."
"On behalf of the Beechworth Football and Netball Club, I’d like to sincerely thank you for for taking the time out of your busy schedule to come and visit us last night. You’re entire presentation was truly powerful and captivating, not to mention thoroughly enjoyable also. To engage a room like the way you did for ninety minutes is no easy feat! I completely related to the content and there is no doubt that everyone else in the room would have resonated with the message you were conveying also. So, thank you for sharing your knowledge and stories with us, and thank you for helping us feel more comfortable about reaching out and saying “here if you need".
"The team at SALT have provided outstanding support to community sporting clubs for a number of years. SALT understands the needs and challenges that clubs face, and their targeted approach makes a significant positive impact on all players and officials, which in turn creates strong healthy clubs. The NFNL has been a partner of SALT since their inception, and I have no hesitation in recommending SALT to any organisation."
"Undertaking Sports and Life Training at the Lindenow South Football Netball Club this year, has proved to be one of the most valuable and important training we have ever committed to as a club. SALT allowed the playing group, which consisted of both netballers and footballers, to either privately check in with the way they were really feeling or discuss their concerns with the playing group. This became a real eye opener. It has now made the playing group stronger and more committed to each other and confirmed the club's direction to focus on mental health as a priority."
"We already see ourselves at Swimland Swim Club as a ‘family’ so the SALT Clubs With Heart Program is our perfect opportunity. As a Club With Heart we further nurture and develop those that are already involved and prepare for those who will call us ‘home’ in the future having fun, succeeding and winning at every level. With SALT’s support we will courageously open our arms further in our development as a destination club, a ‘home’ with respect and care from ‘family’ providing a safe and comforting place to grow resilience."
"As a large local sporting club, we are dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive environment for all. Dedication is one thing, having the skills and knowledge to create it is another. The SALT team are helping us to build them. I look forward to a long relationship with SALT, but more importantly, the benefits of the work we do together."
"Doncaster Hockey Club have used the services of SALT for many years and greatly value the quality of the programs they offer. It was a no-brainer to sign up for the Clubs With Heart webinar series, and we are really looking forward to seeing tangible change occur in the club as a result of our leaders attending the course."
"Our members found SALT’s mental health session very helpful during the pandemic. It was not only informative and interactive, but it encouraged us to come together as a community during a challenging time. We are very excited to be participating in the Clubs with Heart program. We hope to use the knowledge and connections to strengthen our grassroots club."
"The SALT workshops that were run as part of a mental health and wellbeing project really helped us to start thinking and talking about this issue during a disrupted season, which has affected our juniors, seniors and families in different ways. We’re looking forward to learning in the Clubs with Heart webinars about how we can build on our strengths and address the challenges we have."
"SALT's Clubs With Heart project has given Fitzroy FC the opportunity to both really challenge the way we approach different topics / processes at our club and provide tremendous insight & ideas into how other clubs, across multiple sports, are doing it their way."
"I just want to say thx and congratulate you on the sessions tonight. The impression you had on both of my boys and their peers was enormous and they haven’t stopped talking about the session and the messages delivered since they got home. Seeing it live was great and the delivery was powerful, strong and also compassionate. I loved it guys and will be steering more clubs your way. Well done -you are making a real difference and influencing young people in a very positive direction."
"Frankston Districts Tiger Sharks AFL Masters football club have had SALT present to our members twice in the last couple of years and both sessions were fantastic and very well received. The mental health session, in particular was memorable as the club has been affected by suicide and there were many deep and valuable discussions that ensued as a result. We would highly endorse SALT as a valuable resource to all community groups."
"Recently Crib Point Football Netball Club had SALT present to the club. It was refreshing to see all our volunteers and people from the wider community involved with the club attend and totally engaged. This was reinforced by how enthusiastically attendees received the information and who have since expressed a desire for the leadership principles covered, to be implemented at Crib Point Football Netball Club. It was also great to see the real-time analysis of where our club sits from a cultural perspective across many key areas including; mental health, wellbeing, respect for women, leadership and drug/alcohol use."
