Have you heard of the Premier’s Active Challenge? It is an initiative of Victorian Government, to promote healthy and active lifestyles, encouraging Victorians to participate in a fun way.



How does it work?

In April, Victorians are asked to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. By participating, you can log your daily pursuits online via the Active April Activity Tracker. You can then follow your progress throughout the month, as well as create and join teams if you want to, which leads to rewards for your virtual Trophy Cabinet.

How to register

Go to the Active April website on www.activeapril.vic.gov.au and register for free.
Registrations stay open until April 30.

Individual incentives and prizes

If you choose to participate in the 2016 Premier’s Active April, you will automatically receive:

• 10 free passes to a participating YMCA or local government facility
• 15% off at Sportsmart in store and online
• one free hour tennis court hire at Melbourne Park or Albert Reserve
• one free Get into Cardio Tennis session
• a 2 for 1 ticket offer to SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium
• a chance to win some great prizes, such as entry into the draw to win tickets to the 2017 Australian Tennis Open Finals, a $1,500 bike voucher or a GoPro Camera



When you register, will be motivated by weekly emails, including tips on healthy eating and be given access to competitions and prizes.

You can register as an individual, or get involved as part of a school, work place or a group of friends / family.

School incentives

If you nominate your school when you register as a teacher or student, there is a change of winning great prizes.

There is Sportsmart vouchers up for grabs, opportunities to win sports clinics with high-profile athletes, a Good2Go school bike ed course, and the most active school will win $2000 cash.

Go to www.activeapril.vic.gov.au/schools to find out more.

Regardless of your level of fitness, being active for 30 minutes a day isn't too hard to do, think of it as an opportunity to go for a walk with your friends, family or work mates and enjoy the fresh Autumnal Melbourne air.

Registrations are now open via www.activeapril.vic.gov.au
