Community sporting club representatives united at a Good Sports forum in Busselton to hear how they could help build healthier and more family friendly sporting environments.
Delivered by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation's Good Sports team, the forum on Wednesday July 17 covered alcohol and drug related issues at sporting clubs and how to maintain healthy and inclusive environments.
Good Sports is Australia's largest preventative health initiative in community sport and is helping more than 9,500 clubs build healthier, more family friendly environments.
Alcohol and Drug Foundation's WA state manager Greg Williams said sporting clubs were the heart of many communities and could play a vital role in preventing and reducing alcohol and drug-related harms.
"The forum enabled club representatives to come together and build networks in the local area and receive the information and expert support they need to address potential issues around alcohol and drugs," he said.
More than 800 clubs in WA are part of the Good Sports community.
