COVID-19 UPDATE:

we are still here to work with your club

It has been a challenging time for all sporting clubs across Australia, and Good Sports would like to acknowledge the strain being placed on communities across the country as the impacts of coronavirus unfold 

Here at Good Sports, we are passionate about sport and helping clubs around Australia to create a positive sporting culture. We recognise the hard work that many clubs put in to create a safe and inclusive environmentSporting clubs play a prominent role in bringing their communities together, lifting their spirits and creating connections. 

Despite this environment of uncertainty, we are committed to continuing to work with your club to support your Good Sports activities during this period of navigating a new way of working. We understand that you may not be able to operate as usual and many clubs out there have moved their business online, conducting committee meetings through virtual chats or via email.  

These are great ways for your club to continue operating while you can’t be out there playing. 

Now more than ever, it is important to make sure your alcohol and drug management policies are in order, for when the season re-commences.
