BDAFL Joins Good Sports Tackling Illegal Drugs Program
The Black Diamond AFL (BDAFL) is excited to announce that it has agreed to be part of the Tackling Illegal Drugs (TID) Program, an initiative run by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program. The program helps clubs become better prepared to address drug-related issues.
Illegal drug use is widespread in Australia and can affect any sports club. With over 40% of Aussies over the age of 14 having tried an illicit substance, chances are, somebody at your club has been touched by this issue.
BDAFL President, Mr Wal Bembic believes the program is a great opportunity for the BDAFL clubs.
"Our league has been given a great opportunity to strengthen our clubs and community by participating in the TID Program, and we would like all clubs to take part in it" Bembic said.
How does it work?
In early March all clubs will receive an invitation to attend a local forum which will be held on Wednesday 4th April at Wallsend Diggers Club commencing at 6.00pm. .
Following this forum, Good Sports will work with clubs in this area to develop and implement an illegal drugs policy.
The BDAFL are proud to be supporting the Tackling Illegal Drugs Program and look forward to seeing all of our clubs complete the program.
