The Embrace Sport Playbook for educators

The Embrace Sport Playbook is a free and practical guide designed to promote better body image within community sports across Australia. It specifically aims to support parents, coaches and administrators to create sporting club cultures to prevent young people dropping out of sports and other physical activity because they feel judgement, shame and embarrassment about their bodies within their sport.

This national initiative from The Embrace Collective, the health promotion charity run by 2023 Australian of the Year Taryn Brumfitt and international body image expert Dr Zali Yager, is a practical resource, drawn from the latest research and evidence, that empowers clubs and coaches to create safe, supportive and inclusive environments for all participants, especially young people.
