Weet-Bix Active Bands Program for Schools

Designed, developed, and operated by Athletics Australia, Active Bands® is an exciting and fun platform that encourages children to be more physically active, more often. Active Bands unites the digital and physical worlds with a clever mix of science and technology to enhance your school's activity program - including Sporting Schools. Many schools and thousands of Aussie kids Australia-wide are involved, with more joining every day.

How It Works

Watch this 3-minute video now for an overview


Each student will receive a free wristband that connects to the Active Band mobile app developed by Athletics Australia. The platform then rewards children, unlocking incentives as movement milestones are met.

Why Work Together?

Only 19% of Australian children aged 5 to 17 are meeting the recommended guidelines of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity a day. Athletics Australia, through Active Bands, is taking a lead role in influencing and assisting Aussie kids to be more physically active. If you share this vision with us, we would love to work with you to achieve a real and measurable difference. It can easily integrate into your physical education programs and support efforts to increase physical literacy levels across the school community.

Deliverers App

Athletics Australia has developed a Deliverers App to assist with Teachers implementing and using Weet-Bix Active Bands in school. To download the step-by-step instructions on how to use the Deliverers App please click here.

Free for Schools

The Active Bands program is free to use, thanks to government partners Sport Australia and health food partner, Weet-Bix (parent company Sanitarium). Together, we are committed to positively influencing the health and wellbeing of Aussie kids.
