You only get out what you put in. Healthy eating is at the core of having a healthy body, which is a huge advantage, both on and off the field.
We know that sports clubs across the country are leading the charge when it comes to promoting physical fitness. With 60% of Australian adults and 25% of children and adolescents now classed as overweight or obese, it’s more important than ever to get people moving.
Good Sports Healthy Eating is a program designed to give your club a head start. Helping people access healthy food isn’t just a huge win for the community and individuals; it can be a huge boost on game day.
The Good Sports Healthy Eating Program focuses on:
Your local Good Sports team will help tailor the program to the needs of your club. There’s something in it for everyone, regardless of whether you have a full canteen, cook a BBQ once a week, provide half-time snacks or don’t serve food at all.

It gets harder and harder to successfully administer a junior rugby league football club, as there seems to be new challenges to face each year.
However it's programs and opportunities like this that remind us of what's important and brings us back to the fundamental reasons for why we do what we do.
We are one of many awesome sporting communities raising kids collectively and if we all succeed in helping children grow to be self-aware, resilient and happy kids through team sport, then we must all be going something right.
For better or worse, sport does play a role in setting our community standards of behaviour.
We expect our professional sportspeople to behave in a manner conducive to elite performance, and the binge drinking can really no longer be a part of that.
We are helping cricketers of all ages to recognise that they can very easily lead healthy and active lives by making good choices when it comes to eating and drinking while participating in a great sport.
We are very proud of the fact that we are connected and supported by the Good Sports program. Without it, our club would not be where it is today.
Like any culture, whether it be a sports team, club, workplace or social group, for it to be truly strong and positive you need everyone to buy in and live by a set of standards and beliefs.
We’re really fortunate here at Nunawading Basketball to have that across the organisation and our SEABL Women are a shining example of that.
With a wonderful mix of Opals experience, quality US imports, young talent and future stars our women along with Good Sports are really helping us stamp a positive impact across our community and provide our aspiring Junior Spectres with first class, accessible role models.
The best part of being involved with Good Sports is getting to meet and work with so many wonderful people who are involved in grass roots sporting clubs.
They are all volunteers and are so passionate about their clubs and their towns, especially those living in rural areas.
