are pleased to be getting behind the new Good Sports Junior initiative, which
will see a number of sporting clubs across Victoria and New South Wales create
a safer club environment for young members by promoting positive role modelling and health
the assistance of our Multi-Year Partnership funding, the Australian Drug
Foundation has expanded its successful Good Sports program, targeting junior
clubs through a tailored initiative that will see more than 200 clubs across
Victoria and NSW participate in this pilot program in the coming years.
the completion of the pilot program, we hope that many more of Australia’s
7,000 Good Sports clubs will commit to implementing Good Sports Junior.
on key themes of alcohol, tobacco, healthy eating and member conduct, Good
Sports Junior supports clubs in working through a range of criteria that
strengthens their current club environments. It also challenges adult members
to role model behaviours that promote positive health messages to juniors.
Sports Junior helps clubs to minimise high-risk behaviours and establish
healthier lifestyle habits that young people will carry with them through life
– an objective that is fundamental to the work of our foundation.
