Move with Mates is a program specifically designed to help improve the health and wellbeing of Service Members.The program was recently piloted for 4 weeks and all agreed that it was worthwhile and that it should continue.

Members from near and far are invited to meet every Friday at Aquamoves at 9am for an hour of activity followed by a coffee at the cafe.

Activities are varied weekly and include games such as bocce, croquet and volleyball as well as pool and gym-based sessions. The emphasis is put on encouraging “mateship” so that you can look out for each other and keep each other motivated.

Move With Mates targets both younger and more senior Service Members of all physical abilities. If the numbers allow we can split the group according to physical ability.

The program is physiotherapist led and sessions will be held during school terms starting Friday, April 23.

If you have a Gold or White card the program is free of charge with a valid referral (D904) from your GP. Without a referral the cost is $18 per session, which may be claimable on private health insurance.
