Outside The Locker Room (OTLR) is about promoting player development through empowerment, education and leadership both on and off the field.

 

O
What Is It?
Former AFL player, Jake Edwards, has jumped on board a new initiative to introduce a development program to local sporting clubs.

What Is It?

Outside The Locker Room is an education and welfare platform for local sporting clubs across Australia. Our purpose is to connect with people within our communities and offer them on-going support with every day challenges they may face. We achieve this by developing a supportive non-judgmental process that encourages people to contact us where they may first feel uncomfortable in connecting with a clinical professional.

Our program fills a void between person and clinician where we offer a first point of contact before referring on to a local welfare professional.

Our educational experiences focus on an innovative and interactive approach to prevention around topics such as:

- Leadership

- Drugs & Alcohol

- Family Violence

- Mental Health

- Suicide Prevention, Intervention & Post-vention

We use our experience and passion in local sporting clubs to significantly impact the positive wellbeing of men and women of all ages in the community.

How Does It Work?
OTLR is a program for players involved in sporting clubs, focusing on education and support in relation to their daily challenges.

How Does It Work?

OTLR is a program for players and families involved in sporting clubs, focusing on education and support in relation to their daily challenges.

The ethos is to educate young men and women at the early stage of their careers before they have even played their first senior game, and to not only develop better performance, but better people.

The benefits of this mentorship program are vast, but essentially, it promises to take proactive steps in tackling everyday issues that young men and women face, as well as encouraging a humble and prosperous career.

Speaking from personal experiences, our team will relate to the players on a level that no psychologist or counsellor can relate to. This ‘insider’ approach to getting on the same level with the local clubs and its players are vital in bridging the gap.

OTLR will bring your local football or netball club a sense of support and trust that can be used to benefit not only the individual, but also the family unit.

What To Expect
The young men and women who participate in this program will take away many tools to ensure personal and professional development.

What To Expect

The young men and women who participate in this program will take away many tools to ensure personal and professional development.

Over the four sessions, our team will share personal stories, talk about the sport, the dedication that is involved in being an athlete, talk about the importance of decision-making and how that can affect the rest of your life.

The 1 hour workshops will teach your players strategies and tools to combat issues such as alcohol, drugs, peer pressure, mental health, promiscuity, self-respect, self-belief and the power of social media.

Most of all, they will learn how to manage change and fears based on their values and belief system.

Parents and players will then be asked to complete a survey during each session of their experience and education on specific topics so we can evaluate for the club, players and parents.

The key objectives to working with our team over this 12-month period are sure to encourage club player retention and benefit the family unit as well.

Why Does It Work
This is a one-of-a-kind program for local clubs to have their players mentored by our team in a 12 month commitment to your porting club.

Why Does It Work

At the final session, the players parents will be asked to join in the workshop to ensure both parent and child are on the same page and share the same understanding.

Parents and players will then be asked to complete a survey of their OTLR experience so a measurable value can be evaluated for the club, players and parents.

The key objectives to working with our team over this 12-month period are sure to encourage club player retention and benefit the family unit as well.

Vision
We believe OTLR has the capacity to enrich local sporting clubs within and beyond Australia.
