Tiger PAW program wins Industry Innovation Award

Tiger PAW program wins Industry Innovation Award
July 27, 2017

Richmond Football Club and Aligned Leisure’s Tiger PAW program has won a major award at the Australian Sport, Recreation and Play Innovation Awards held as part of the National Sports Convention in Melbourne last week.

The successful Tiger PAW (Physical Activity and Wellbeing) program - which educates primary school aged children in four modules, which are developed dependant on the needs of the local community - was the joint winner of the prestigious Programs, Activities and Events Award.

The 2017 program was rolled out in Cardinia Shire and has been delivered to over 1,000 students, focusing on physical activity, mental health, diversity and nutrition.

This award follows Tiger PAW’s success as the Innovative Program of the Year at the 2015 Aquatic and Recreation Victoria awards.

Welcoming receipt of the Award, Aligned Leisure Managing Director Cain Liddle stated “Tiger PAW is offered to every primary school in the regions that Aligned Leisure operate. The program is built entirely around local health and wellbeing programs and teaches important health messages to students.

“The program uses a combination of Richmond AFL players and in class facilitators to deliver key messages on behalf of our partners”.

“In 2017, the program reached over 1,000 children in Cardinia and we look forward to expanding further in 2018, when we launch the program into the Nillumbik Shire.”

The National Sports Convention has engaged more than a dozen collaborators and over 125 global and Australian organisations who came together to encourage the industry to be more innovative in the way it plans, funds, and provides physical activity opportunities.

The Innovation Awards aim at recognising and celebrating Innovation that has promoted and encouraged more people to play, recreate and participate in sport. The Innovation Award winners were announced as part of the National Sports Convention.

The Award’s $500 prize will be donated to Aligned Leisure’s charity partner in the Cardinia region - the Casey Cardinia Foundation.

Aligned Leisure is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Richmond Football Club, and currently operate the Cardinia Shire’s major aquatic and recreation facilities and the Eltham Leisure Centre, on behalf of the Nillumbik Shire.

Aligned Leisure shared the Programs, Activities and Events Award with the Belgravia Leisure Access and Inclusion Program.
