Sport Chaplaincy

Football clubs are full of young men. This stage of life is characterised by constant change in the significant domains of life being vocation, relationships, living arrangements and social life. Each of these change moments has the potential to derail a young persons life due to the anxiety and stress associated.

A preventative approach to wellbeing is to provide support to young people as they transition through these periods of change.
By successfully managing these moments, the young person reduces the health burden by not adding to it at the clinical end which requires far greater intervention and resource. Furthermore it equips them with the skills and self-efficacy to manage future change in a healthier manner.

This is the goal of our Sports Chaplaincy program. To come alongside local sporting clubs and provide the players with support so they can thrive on and off the field. Our dream is to see sporting clubs across Tasmania become places where young people can find support, belonging and healthy community.

“Honesty”, “transparency”, “mateship” aren’t just buzz words that get casually thrown around sporting clubs. For LFC they are clearly defined…
