Communities participate in sports clubs to feel connected, be active and improve health.

However, sport which is played outside means participants are exposed to the sun’s UV radiation.

Too much UV exposure leads to sun damage and skin cancer.

Support your team and broader community to be protected against UV so you can enjoy the great benefits of being active outdoors.
