Active Bands 

Designed, developed, and operated by Athletics Australia, Active Bands® is an exciting and fun platform that encourages children to be more physically active, more often.

Active Bands unites the digital and physical worlds with a clever mix of science and technology to enhance your school's activity program - including Sporting Schools. Many schools and thousands of Aussie kids Australia-wide are involved, with more joining every day.



Athletics Australia has developed a Deliverers App for both iOS and Android to assist Teachers & Coaches in implementing and using Active Bands within their school or organisation.

How It Works

Each student will receive a free wristband that connects to the Active Band mobile app developed by Athletics Australia. The platform then rewards children, unlocking incentives as movement milestones are met.


Why Active Bands?

Only 19% of Australian children aged 5 to 17 are meeting the recommended guidelines of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity a day. Athletics Australia, through Active Bands, is taking a lead role in influencing and assisting Aussie kids to be more physically active.
