Good Sports helps club reduce the risk of drink driving by giving you all the tools you need to put in place safe transport practices.
Making sure members and guests get to and from games and events safely is an important part of having a great club environment where everyone is looked after.
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 have 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.

In South Australia, the Good Sports program is a partner of the South Australian Government through the THINK! Road Safety initiative, working to remind all South Australians that road trauma can be prevented when everyone thinks about their own behaviour when driving, riding, or walking.
In New South Wales, Good Sports is funded by the NSW Government through Transport for NSW from the Community Road Safety Fund.
