ReachOut Australia are looking for a club with great team spirit to be the stars of a new video which showcases the line between playful locker room banter and damaging chat.
Recent research with young people around Australia has found that often, some of the most harmful behaviour to a young person’s wellbeing can come from their own friends. It’s hard to recognise this sort of behaviour when it comes from your own mates. To help point out the difference between cheeky locker room chat and comments that are harmful and insulting, ReachOut is creating a great new video which we want you to be a part of!
Participating in this video will be fun, laid back and a great way to showcase the brilliant attitudes and social awareness of your team.
We need up to 12 players who will be asked to:
Real aloud statements from palm cards, ranging from playful to hurtful
Explain why they thought the statement did or didn’t cross a line
Talk about their experience with banter/bullying and give advice to other young people.
We want people who aren’t afraid to have a laugh, but can think seriously about the topics as well. Don’t worry if no one has been on camera before, we have a great team who will guide them through 100% of the way.
We will come to you and film over a single day
Video will be used on ReachOut’s online platforms
Your club and team will be able to use the final video
Please note participation is on a volunteer basis
