Youthsafe works collaboratively with sporting groups and government to develop innovative safety strategies addressing risks young people face while playing sport.

Workshops for young sports players – Stay in the Game

Youthsafe runs facilitated discussions for young athletes exploring the concept of risk, related consequences and strategies for making safer choices.

“Youthsafe’s ‘Stay in the Game’ sessions get our young players to develop meaningful strategies to help them stay safe, on and off the field.
The sessions really make them think about what’s in their control, and help them take responsibility for their own safety.”

Nickie Flambouras, AFL NSW/ACT

Front of Mind session for Sports Coaches and Umpires

Youthsafe’s Front of Mind session provides coaches and umpires with a real point of difference.  Drawing from the Positive Coaching movement, this session explores the key role of influence coaches and other sporting administrators have in a young player’s life and how to use that influence to reduce injury and improve performance.  


We are flexible and can arrange multiple bookings or concurrent sessions.

All our sessions are available throughout the Sydney metropolitan area. Packages can be developed for regions outside Sydney including The Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Illawarra regions.

If you would like more information or to book a session, please call our Education Coordinator on (02) 9817 7847 or  email
