the success of our initial three-year partnership with the Alcohol and Drug
Foundation, we are delighted to announce an additional two years of funding to
help expand the Good Sports Junior program nationally.
Based on the original
award winning Good Sports program, Good Sports Junior provides a unique
approach to assisting sporting clubs with junior teams to establish strong
alcohol management, healthy food supply and tobacco management policies and
It aims to further
enhance positive cultural and social behaviour change by creating positive
sporting environments that foster the health and wellbeing of junior
throughout rural and metropolitan New South Wales and Victoria, with our
funding support, the program will be expanded nationally.
The program will provide
participating clubs with an improved framework and guidance on how to implement
strategies and policies, increase healthy food and beverage options that are
made available in club canteens and provide support and resources to promote
and inform players, parents and members.
