the TOPIC:

 

pandemic vs participation,

With the entire world touched by COVID in 2020, one part of the community that has never really had its voice heard are the kids involved in Junior Sport. As a collective, they have had to make the biggest sacrifices with the least amount of understanding to the events that have caused this.

In this Podcast, we will also touch on the price paid by kids with Mental Health, Physical Health, the impacts financially as well as the issue facing Victoria VS the rest of the country.
