Whether you’re super serious about your chosen sport, or just like to have a go for fun, Good Sports clubs understand playing at any level is what matters to you.

Maybe you don’t want to play at all and are happier behind the grill or supporting the players from the sidelines.

Good Sports is a good fit for everyone.

The program works across all aspects of club performance, on field and off. It lays out a set of policies and guidelines that promote good health and wellbeing for all members.

What are the advantages?

If your club is a Good Sports club, it has:

  • a safe and welcoming club environment
  • clear guidelines around good behaviour on field and off
  • a caring attitude toward your health and wellbeing
  • all its legal rules and regulations sorted.

What that means for members, families and volunteers is they can come along knowing they'll find a safe and fun environment where the sport shines.

Parents will find good role modelling for their children and an environment that supports respectful behaviour.

Top class sports club

A Good Sports club is committed to keeping things energised and creating a positive club environment that keeps improving over time.

Club organisers put policies in place to achieve this, including smart ways to deal with:

  • risky drinking
  • illegal drugs
  • mental health
  • safe celebrations
  • safe transport
  • safe social media
  • positive player and spectator behaviour.
