Point Leo SLSC is committed to the principles of the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program as a Level 3 accredited club.
Good Sports is the first nationwide alcohol management program of its kind and is supported in Victoria by supported in Victoria by VicHealth, Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and Department of Health (DoH). 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 developed a written alcohol management policy that clearly explains how we will manage alcohol responsibly and reduce alcohol related harms. 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 Point Leo SLSC is a great place to participate and socialise for all members of our community.
The Club will be regularly monitored to ensure we comply with the program. It is the responsibility of all members to make sure we do the right thing by the program.
