Dragons Health Ambassador Ben Creagh and all of the Dragons squad understand the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle to be the best they can be on the field; Dragons Community shares this message with kids in our nursery through programs including Dragons 40:20 Program, Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well - Healthy Lifestyle Assemblies and the Premiers Sporting Challenge.
Dragons 40:20 Program
A new initiative for 2011, the Dragons 40:20 Program is a combination of our very successful Dragons Active program and our exciting new educational resource ‘Dragons in the Classroom’. In partnership with ARL Development, Dragons Community school visits will involve a 40 minute Dragons Active outdoor session followed by a 20-30 minute classroom session with staff using our ’Dragons in the Classroom’ resources.
Lesson contents include: Nutrition, Hydration, Dragons Values, Sleeping Habits, Indigenous Australians, Environmental Issues and the importance of leading a active lifestyle.
Eat Well, Play Well, Stay Well - Healthy Lifestyle Assemblies
The Dragons in association with the NRL ONE Community’s EWPWSW program have been visiting schools in our Dragons nursery. Dragons’ players and staff deliver the important message of living a healthy, active lifestyle by conducting interactive assemblies, engaging the kids while having fun at the same time.
Premier's Sporting Challenge
Dragons winger and Australian representative player Brett Morris is the current Premiers Sporting Challenge Ambassador.
The Dragons are supporting the NSW Premier's Sporting Challenge which aims to engage Primary and Secondary school students in sport and physical activity, encouraging the students to lead a healthy balanced lifestyle.
