What is Good Sports?

Good Sports is Australia’s largest and longest running health initiative in community sports. A free program from the Alcohol and Drug Foundation, Good Sports aims to build stronger communities by championing positive change and helping to create safe and family-friendly clubs that thrive. Today almost 10,000 clubs are proud to be part of the Good Sports team.
