Healthy Clubs

Community attitudes have changed and people are less tolerant of boozy, smoke-filled, unsafe sporting clubs. In short, 'family friendly', health promoting clubs where everyone feels welcome, safe and respected attract members and sponsors. Things your club could consider are:

  • expanding your smoke-free areas and minimize exposure of juniors to smoking 
  • participating in the Good Sports Program to improve your club's alcohol management
  • training people in Responsible Serving of Alcohol, Food Handling, First Aid etc 
  • developing injury prevention measures and emergency procedures
  • developing sun protection measures
  • serving healthy nutritious food at events and club functions
  • ensuring that everyone is treated with respect and dignity.
