Good Sports Level 3 Accreditation
Sunbury Cricket Club is committed to the principles of responsible alcohol management by applying for Level 3 accreditation in the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.
Good Sports is the first nationwide alcohol management program of its kind and is run in Victoria by Good Sports with the support of the Australian Drug Foundation and the Department of Health and Ageing. The program was developed following research conducted by the Australian Drug Foundation which indicated that by introducing responsible alcohol management practices, clubs became safer and more viable.
As a requirement of Level 3, the Club has to demonstrate alcohol responsibility and reduced alcohol related harm. The policy includes sections on bar management, the sale of low and non-alcoholic drinks, safe transport, the provision of food when alcohol is served and removing the emphasis on alcohol for player awards, functions and prizes.
We are confident that our involvement in the Good Sports program will continue to improve the environment at the Club. We are working to ensure that Sunbury Cricket Club is a great place to participate and socialise for all members of our community.
The club will regularly monitor to ensure we comply with the program. It is the responsibility of all members to make sure we do the right thing when drinking and enjoying ourselves.
