Safe transport

This National Road Safety Week (May 15 – 22), your club can help make sure your members, families and guests make it home safe. Good Sports’ free resources guide you in putting in place safe transport practices, as part of your Good Sports policy.

What is safe transport?

Local sporting clubs know that being great is about more than just winning. It’s about looking after each other, on and off the field. This includes making sure members get home safely after a game or celebration.

Each club’s Good Sports policy will implement at least three safe transport practices from the Guide to Safe Transport. This includes ideas such as a designated driver program, a call-service for taxis or free transport provided by the club.

All Gold Medal Good Sports clubs, that have reached the highest level of the program, have road safety included in their Good Sports policy.
