Premier’s Active April is here again!  Social distancing doesn’t need to stop you from getting active.  Being physically active during this time is recommended by the World Health Organisation to maintain good physical and mental health, and to keep our stress levels at bay.

Sports Central are encouraging our communities to #stayactive throughout April.  We will be publishing a range of articles showcasing a variety of ways to #stayactive using social distancing measures.  Being active for at least 30 minutes a day will help you to feel better, with more energy, a better mood, feel more relaxed and sleep better.  

If you live, work or play in Ballarat be sure to join the #activeselfies campaign.  
Simply take an active selfie and include these hashtags in your post – #activeselfies #activeapril2020 #activeballarat #stayhome.  You will go into the running to win a three month GOLD membership to the Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyle Centre and an InterSport goodie bag!  *Competition open to anyone who lives, works or plays in the City of Ballarat.  The winner will be notified via social media in early May.
