An exciting new initiative to encourage people in San Remo and Blue Haven to ‘Get Active’ and discover the breadth of sports, active recreation and physical activity options in their community will kick off on 1 October 2022.

Get Active – San Remo and Blue Haven has been developed in partnership by the NSW Office of Sport, Central Coast Council and Central Coast Local Health District’s Health Promotion Service.

The initiative will highlight the unique range of activities, including swimming, basketball, yoga, dance and fitness offered by sport and recreation providers in the region throughout the month of October.

Importantly, many of the activities will be offered for free or at low or reduced cost, with the aim to encourage people to try a new activity or sport and foster social connection – helping build a stronger and healthier community.

The campaign has involved extensive consultation with the local community to help identify the activities and support needed, and which can be made available by local providers.

The diverse range of offerings, taking place at a number of locations across San Remo and Blue Haven, will ensure there is something for all ages and abilities.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said the NSW Government partners were looking forward to supporting Get Active in the San Remo and Blue Haven area.

“Get Active offers a range of diverse and interesting activities for people of all ages and abilities,” Mr Crouch said.

“With the support of local community sport and recreation providers, everyone can try a new sport or activity at Get Active San Remo and Blue Haven.”

Get Active – San Remo and Blue Haven builds on work already done in the area to support community wellbeing, including the Central Coast Health Promotion Service’s Activate Your Space project.

Central Coast Council’s Administrator, Rik Hart, said he hopes the initiative leaves a lasting legacy.

“We’ve been really pleased by the support from community groups and organisations who have been so supportive and willing to offer new activities or existing ones for free or at discounted rates to encourage people to get involved,” Mr Hart said.

“By working with sports and active recreation providers and listening to the needs of the community, we hope to create a supply and demand for physical activity that extends beyond our October calendar and well into the future.”

Health Promotion Officer at Central Coast Local Health District, Nigel Tebb, said the initiative aims to remove barriers to improving our health.

“Working in partnership with the community, we hope to remove some of the barriers that prevent people from being physically active and encourage people to try new activities,” Mr Tebb said.

“Regular physical activity and exercise is so important for our health and wellbeing. It can help improve your strength and fitness, prevent or reduce the impact of chronic diseases and reduce stress, anxiety and depression.”
