Good Sports Program

More people and players participating in clubs, increased memberships, a boost in sponsorship revenue, and a more welcome environment for children and families; these are just some of the benefits that come with changing your club's attitude towards alcohol. 

Good Sports is a FREE program of the Australian Drug Foundation, designed to increase knowledge & skills around alcohol management for community sporting clubs Australia-wide. The program is an important resource to help clubs minimise risk, and better understand liquor licencing requirements. City of Salisbury is a key Good Sports partner, working closely with the program to benefit local clubs.

You can find more information about Good Sports, as well as how to become a Good Sports club by visiting the Good Sports website.
