New Partnership with Deakin University Researchers
Sport SA is excited to announce a new partnership with Deakin University researchers to support Australia’s first and biggest study of men’s mental health and wellbeing during their late 20s and early 30s. The Men and Parenting Pathways (MAPP) Study will make an important contribution to supporting men and furthering our understanding of mental health risks during this stage of life.
If you’re a man aged between 28 and 32, with or without children, the MAPP Study wants YOU! Participation involves completing an online survey once a year for five years. Monthly prize draws are held for men who participate. As a MAPP study partner, Sport SA encourages you to be a part of this important initiative by participating if you are eligible, or forwarding this information to anyone you think might be interested. To take part in the MAPP Study please click here, or for more information visit the MAPP Study website here.

Education and Sport Opportunities for Student Athletes
Sport SA and Athletes Dream Pty Ltd have signed a strategic alliance to activate and promote the importance of Athlete Career Development. Through this alliance, qualifying student athletes will receive opportunities to combine Education and Sport, particularly in North America. College scholarships in North America are sought after, hard to acquire alone and will change your life.
A sustainable lifestyle post sporting career is a key objective for any athlete. Without higher education too many athletes are experiencing a narrow pathway of opportunity in securing an enjoyable working future. Obtaining higher education is paramount in improving the skill set of an athlete, which provides long term returns of social and economic benefit to the communities that once supported the athlete.
