Sport & Recreation

THRIVE is all about helping us to be at our best. Research has found that there are six simple actions we can all do daily to help us feel good, do good and live good.

The science of positive psychology is being used to provide community sport and recreation clubs with a structured approach to improve wellbeing, participation and enhance club culture.

THRIVE is now proudly working with the following clubs.

We had a great turnout to the safeTALK seminar last week run by Josh, Danielle and Chelsea from Thrive in Sport & Rec at the DFC where we learnt how to be suicide alert.

Thanks to the team for providing some great training and insight on how to recognise invitations for help and connect people to resources. #keepsafe

Exciting Health & Wellbeing News for 2023!
Dromana Junior Football & Netball Club have partnered with Thrive in Sport & Rec framework aimed at enhancing wellbeing and achievement in community sport and recreation.

THRIVE is informed by Positive Psychology, which is the scientific study of the conditions and processes that contribute to optimal functioning of people, groups, and organisations.

Research has shown that there are six specific strategies and skills sets that can be developed to allow people to navigate the challenges of life more effectively.

THRIVE is based around this research and has modelled this into the THRIVE acronym.

THRIVE will support Dromana with ongoing, integrated mental health supports to enhance community wellbeing, contribute to positive team culture, performance, and participation across the entire association.

While everyone is on hiatus we’re working on some great programs, events and initiatives for our players and Club community for next year. Stay tuned! Danny Frawley Centre
