Council is inviting fitness providers to fill out an Expression of Interest to run classes and sessions for Bundaberg Regional Council’s Be Active Be Alive program over spring and summer.
Council’s Sport and Recreation portfolio spokesperson, Cr Vince Habermann, said there had been some positive changes for the spring summer program.
“This year we are trialling separating the Pools and Parks programs,” Cr Habermann said.
“In the first four weeks of the program, from 19 October, we will be running free fitness activities across the beautiful parks in the Region.
“In the final four weeks leading up to 12 December we will be running activities in local pools.
“This will give everyone an opportunity to attend more classes and Be Active with us!”
Fitness providers are invited to fill out the EOI online.
Programs will be delivered in Bundaberg, coastal areas, Childers and Gin Gin.
“We recommend that anyone applying has a first aid certificate, CPR certification, business or personal insurance, certificate of incorporation (if an incorporated body) and qualification certificates handy when they fill out the online form.”
Expressions of Interest will close on 21 August, with the Be Active Be Alive program to be run from 19 October to 12 December. All classes and sessions will be free to the public.
Instructors will be remunerated at industry-standard rates for delivery of all sessions.
“We want as many people as possible to enjoy the wide range of classes that we’re sure will be on offer,” Cr Habermann said.
“We’re wanting as much variety as possible, so are hoping that a wide range of fitness providers will apply.”
