The Knox Football Club has decided to participate in the Outside the Locker Room (OTLR) program.
The program will run on the following nights. Each session runs for approx. an hour.
Tuesday June 5th – 7.45pm (Launch for Players, Parents, committee, sponsors etc.)
Thursday June 7th - (Coach/Support Staff session)
Tuesday July 3rd – 7.45pm (Mental Health/Drugs Education Session)
Tuesday July 17th – 7.45pm (Alcohol/Gambling Education Session)
I believe this will be a positive step forward for our club to not only encourage growth and development in our coaching and support staff but also equip our players to be ‘better functioning’ people.
OTLR was introduced to us by Debbie Fisher, mother of Jake Fitzsimmons, who some of our players knew.
Over the past 18 months, since Jakes suicide, Debbie had been looking at different ways to help young adults with managing depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol abuse and basically trying to deal with this adult world.
Outside The Locker Room is a terrific platform to help young adults to deal with all of the above and so, I would appreciate your time just to read through the information provided below.
It is a basic run down of what is on offer and the ongoing support provided for our Players, Mums and Dads, Coaching & Support Staff and Committee Members, just to name a few.
Also below you will find some links to the Welfare Program and the App that is available.

OTLR provides a free app for the players and club members to access 24/7. OTLR screens the boys and girls through the app in an effort to gather an understanding of the biggest issues in their lives. They are in the process of working within Grief-line to have phone support 18 hours a day, and also have an ACA (Australian Counseling Association) trained counselor at each of our education sessions, as well as a facilitator, to ensure people who need to connect with somebody on the night can do so.
I encourage all our players (Football & Netball) to attend these sessions, and sincerely hope that many of you support this initiative.
