Study participant recruitment commences 1 September 2019.

This is a pilot study with cricket community clubs only around Melbourne region at this stage. It is an 8-week cricket play program with 3-time measurements on physical activity, sleep, cognitive function, and ADHD symptoms. We are endeavouring to provide coaches and volunteers with some training and guide information to better understand how to interact well with children with ADHD which parents of children with ADHD are most concerned about from our qualitative research earlier this year. This component should address and deal with concerns of most parents/caregivers on this program.
If any parents/caregivers are interested in this program, they are encouraged to leave their contact information through the link here: https://rmit.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3yZ1YuwrosszYpf .
