Club Accreditation

Good Sports - Level 3 Accredited

Sports clubs such as ours play a significant role in the community and therefore have a responsibility to our members and their families. In recognition of this, the Glen Waverley Hawks Football Club has elected to participate in the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.

The program is run in Victoria by the Australian Drug Foundation in conjunction with VicHealth, Traffic Accident Commission, the Department of Human Services and the Alcohol Education Rehabilitation Foundation. The program has been designed to assist clubs with the responsible management of alcohol and is the only nationwide program of its kind.

As a community based club we believe involvement in this program is a way for our club to promote a healthy and welcoming club culture whilst working to consistently meet our duty of care obligations in regards to alcohol consumption.

To become Good Sports Level 3 accredited we will address a number of criteria including having members trained in the Responsible Serving of Alcohol.
