Elite Athlete Wellbeing Management Course launches in the UK.
We are excited to announce that our first international program kicked off at Loughborough University in the UK on 21 January, 2020 Wellbeing professionals from the English Premier League, USA Rugby, Rugby League, Gaelic football, The League Managers Association and Loughborough University were a part of the launch. Loughborough is a great venue to host the program, not just because of its extensive sport science, research and teaching capability but also because Loughborough is home to 12 English Institute of Sport major programs. Simon Wombwell, Education and Development Manager (Performance Sport), Loughborough University, added: “In order for Loughborough University to continue to cement its position as the world’s best sporting university, we must continually look to learn from high calibre examples globally. As part of this, we are proud to be the first European host site for the Wellbeing Science Institute Certificate IV in Elite Athlete Wellbeing Management as it aligns with our values of supporting wellbeing to enhance holistic performance.” Find out more.
Canberra Raiders - winning on & off the field
The on-field success of the NRL Canberra Raiders has been well documented this year. What is less well-known is that key members of the Canberra Raiders Club have been investing in their own wellbeing by studying Australia’s only Elite Athlete Wellbeing Management Course. 12 Players from the Club, including the co-Captains Jarrod Croker and Josh Hodgson, on their 1 day off each week have been completing the Course to enhance their own knowledge and skills in the areas of athlete wellbeing. Completing the Course was the brainchild of Player Wellbeing Manager, Andrew Bishop, who saw it as a great opportunity to embed wellbeing within the Club.

Australian Professional Cricket Investing in Wellbeing
Many professional sports have a desire to improve the wellbeing of athletes. However few are to willing to make the investments that pay off for athletes – during and after – their athletic careers. The Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) decided to do things differently. They invited current professional players, and the people who take care of their wellbeing (Player Development Managers) to both participate in Australia’s first holistic athlete wellbeing management course. By completing the Course, both Players and PDMs got the opportunity to work together to learn valuable skills that can be applied in athlete’s lives. Because if both athletes and PDMs have the skills that enable better wellbeing outcomes – before problems arise – not only do they enjoy higher levels of wellbeing, they are able to pass on these skills to others, when they might need them. Player and PDM feedback was conclusive – the Course made a real difference. Don’t just take our word for it, hear what they have to say.
