Engaging with students and our community
Partnerships with the athletic community
CDU Wellness Centre supports health and fitness programs through student and community engagement. We have an ongoing partnership with Swimming NT to provide opportunities for CDU Exercise and Sport Science students to refine their practical knowledge, by assisting elite athletes with their strength training program - under the guidance and supervision of qualified academic staff. The experience is an essential part of developing work-ready graduates, enhancing the employability of students and building strong relationships with the community.
Supporting Healthy Ageing
CDU Wellness Centre continues to support Seniors Month (August 2021), an initiative by the Council on the Ageing (COTA NT). Our students are guided and supervised by qualified academic staff to conduct physical health assessments, discuss mental health and well-being, provide nutritional advice and free personal training sessions with the CDU Fitness students.
This year we were proudly sponsored by Northern Territory Government - Territory Families.
Supporting the local sports community
We are also proud to support the local sports community such as the Cyclone Indoor Rowing NT (CIRNT), lead by Indoor Rowing Coach and CDU PhD Candidate - Lee Harrop. CDU students are provided with the opportunity to complete the rowing coaching accreditation through their GRow Program and have been embedded as a part of the Exercise and Sport Science course to attain real-world experience in a recognised National Sports organisation. The GRow program also offers a ‘Fitter over Fifties’ session to provide further opportunities for older community members to feel comfortable returning to an exercise program.
