Good Sports is a national accreditation program of the Australian Drug Foundation which works to make community sporting clubs healthy, safe and family-friendly environments by reducing alcohol and tobacco-related harms such as drink driving, and violence and aggression.
Good Sports clubs work through three levels of accreditation that identify a range of areas for improving practices including alcohol and tobacco management, safe transport and alternative fundraising strategies.
The North Sydney Brothers have been awarded accreditation for their commitment to building a healthy, safe and family-friendly environment not just for players but also members, families and the community.
