The Marrickville Souths Fitness and Breakfast Club is a partnership program between Weave, Barnardos, Inner West Council, Marrickville PCYC, Sydney Airport and Marrickville Youth Resource Centre.
The program runs during the school term from 6am every Tuesday and Thursday in terms 1 and 2 and every Wednesday in terms 3 and 4.
Young people can be collected from home and driven to the Marrickville PCYC where they engage in range of sports and training exercises with players from the Rabbitohs U20s for one hour.
After this hour, the young people have the opportunity to shower and freshen up before breakfast and lunch is provided.
After breakfast, the young people are driven to their local school or workplace. Since the program has been running, absenteeism rates among school students has decreased dramatically, and the social aspect of the club means that students are happy to wake up early for breakfast and exercise.
The young people are educated about the importance of breakfast, as well as healthy eating choices.
