LFC Good Sports Level 2





8 April 2011

The Lindisfarne Football Club has an ongoing commitment to responsible alcohol management and has recently re-engaged with the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.  The club’s Level 2 accreditation has recently been reviewed and reinstated, allowing the club to now work towards level 3 accreditation in the program.

The program provides leadership and support to community sports clubs throughout Australia to manage alcohol responsibly. It aims to help clubs become more viable by creating a safe and friendly environment whilst addressing their duty of care obligations in relation to alcohol consumption. It is the first nationwide alcohol management program of its kind.

As part of Level 2 accreditation, we have implemented practices around responsible alcohol management including the development of safe transport strategies to ensure our members get home safely. Our facilities will continue to be smoke-free and the emphasis for player awards, fundraising, prizes and functions will not be alcohol. Food will be provided when alcohol is served and we will sell a variety of low and non-alcoholic drinks. All our bar staff will be RSA trained.

We are confident our efforts will continue to improve the environment at Lindisfarne Football Club. We are working to ensure the Club 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 our members to make sure we do the right thing when drinking and enjoying ourselves.

The Good Sports program is run in Tasmania by the Australian Drug Foundation with the support of the Tasmanian Government and the Department of Health and Ageing.
