Tassie football clubs continue to serve as positive examples around alcohol
Tasmanian footy clubs are kicking goals in alcohol management, ensuring the focus is on sport.
Evandale Football Club and George Town Football Club were recently awarded Level 2 accreditations, and Campbell Town Football Club has received Level 1.
Campbell Town Football Club President Craig Mayne said their club had gone through some major changes in the past year.
“We have received really positive feedback from our members and local community about the change down at the club,” Craig said.
“We have a new alcohol management policy in place and morale has improved significantly.
“We are delighted to be part of the Good Sports program and really proud to have reached level 1 accreditation. We are aiming to achieve our level 2 accreditation in the next year.”
George Town Football Club President Michael Spinks said that their aim is to keep the focus on sport, not drinking.
“Our club is a welcoming and safe place to play, or watch, some great sport without fear of “boozy louts” ruining our day.”
Across Tasmania, over 200 clubs are involved with Good Sports.
Good Sports is supported in Tasmania by the Tasmanian Government.
