Nominate your club for the Good Sports Awards

By James Arbuthnott

Community sporting clubs and volunteers that promote healthy and inclusive club environments are encouraged to enter the 2019 Good Sports Awards.

Managed by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation and funded by the Federal Government, the initiative works with more than 9500 community sports clubs across Australia. 

“Community sporting clubs that role-model healthy behaviours are leaders in their community and play an important role in reducing and preventing harms from alcohol and other drugs,” Alcohol and Drug Foundation chief executive Erin Lalor said.

“We know running a community sporting club is hard work. That’s why the Good Sports team is committed to guiding clubs through the Good Sports program, making it easier for already busy volunteers to implement."

Nominations close midnight Monday, September 30 and clubs can qualify for multiple categories, including:

Club of the YearClub ChampionHealthy Eating ClubHealthy Minds ClubJunior ClubSafe Transport ClubRookie ClubTackling Illegal Drugs Club
