Good Sports Program
Good Sports has been proven to reduce harm and positively influence health behaviours, as well as strengthen club membership and boost participation. Good Sports work together with clubs to prevent and minimise the harm caused by alcohol and other drugs. The Good Sports program is implemented voluntarily through community sporting clubs; helping clubs to promote healthier, safer and more family-friendly environments.
The core Good Sports program has been helping community sporting clubs to control the use of alcohol and to promote healthy behaviours - such as healthy eating and smoke free environments - for nearly two decades.
Implemented in almost 9,000 community sporting clubs, Good Sports is supported by the latest evidence and has the scope and experience to deliver positive outcomes, improve the health of communities and strengthen the sustainability of grass roots clubs.
City of Salisbury is a key Good Sports partner, working closely with the program to benefit local clubs.

Responsible Service of Alcohol Training
Responsible Service of Alcohol Training (RSA) & Liquor Licensing Laws (LLL) is an integral part of the Good Sports Program. RSA and LLL training assist community sporting clubs to operate within the law and promote the safe service and consumption of alcohol.
This training course (tailored for sporting clubs) provides information and strategies to assist volunteer bar staff and committee members in the service of alcohol, while helping to better understand South Australian regulations, such as the Liquor Licensing Act (1997). The course is recommended for anybody selling or supplying alcohol at their sporting club. Please note that RSA training will be mandatory for all bar servers at venues with a club licence from 18 January 2013.
Good Sports accredited clubs receive this nationally recognised training at subsidised rates. City of Salisbury sporting clubs that are accredited with the Good Sports program will receive a further subsidy as noted in the section above.
The City of Salisbury through the Salisbury Sport & Recreation Network will be running subsidised Responsible Service of Alcohol training sessions in 2020 for local sport and recreation club volunteers. Dates of these sessions will be announced soon. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.

New liquor licensing code of practice
RSA training will be mandatory for all bar servers at venues with a Club Licence from 18 January 2013. The new code will impact many clubs like your own, and all clubs (regardless of licence type) will need to conduct a risk assessment and create a written management plan to show how they mitigate those risks.

Club Liquor Licence
Clubs that sell liquor for consumption on or off the premises require a Club Licence or a Limited Club Licence. A Limited Licence is only appropriate for a one-off special event or a series of special events.
A Club Licence permits the sale and supply of liquor on licensed premises to any member of the public who is not a minor. It does not permit the sale of take-away liquor unless special approval has been granted by the licensing authority (refer section 36 and section 102 of the Act).
Limited Club Licence
A Limited Club Licence permits the sale and supply of liquor on licensed premises to club members or guests of members only. A club member is permitted to have no more than five guests on the premises at any one time (refer section 36(3) of the Act). A Limited Club Licence does not permit the sale of take-away liquor.
