GOLDEN GROVE FOOTBALL CLUB WINS NATIONAL AWARD
Golden Grove Football Club has been crowned Good Sports South Australian Club of the Year at the national Good Sports Awards in Canberra.

Good Sports clubs from across the country were today honoured at Parliament House for their commitment to building healthy and inclusive environments, where members look out for one another around alcohol and tobacco management, safe transport, healthy eating, mental health and positive spectator behavior.

Golden Grove Football Club was named South Australian Club of the Year for inspiring positive change and building a healthy, family-friendly club. It receives $500 for its achievements.

President Kate Grandey credits the Good Sports program for helping the club be the welcoming place it is today.

“We are a family club but also a club that is family. This is summed up by our catchphrases ‘Kookabrothers and Kookasistas’. Our club focus is to continue to develop a positive, healthy and inclusive club culture and Good Sports provides invaluable support in these areas,” said Ms Grandey.

Golden Grove Football Club has reached the highest level of the Good Sports program, implementing policies around alcohol management, tobacco and safe transport. It is also committed to providing a positive and supportive environment for their youngest players through the Good Sports Junior program.

Minister for Youth and Sport, Senator the Hon Richard Colbeck, represented the Australian Government at the Awards. He praised the winners and finalists, calling them community champions.

“All of the Good Sports Awards finalists should feel incredibly proud of their efforts in building strong, inclusive and healthy environments,” Minister Colbeck remarked.

“Sporting clubs are the beating heart of many communities and clubs that demonstrate healthy behaviours are role models for local families and the whole community,” Minister Colbeck added.

In South Australia, Good Sports is funded by the Australian Government and the South Australian Government. Managed by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation, Good Sports is Australia’s largest and longest-running health initiative in community sport.

“The Good Sports team is proudly working with almost 10,000 community sporting clubs across Australia and more than 1,000 in South Australia,” said Alcohol and Drug Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Dr Erin Lalor AM.

“The free program encourages systemic changes in club culture to promote long-term positive health outcomes,” Dr Lalor explained.

Good Sports is proven to reduce risking drinking at participating clubs by 37% and has seen a reduction of alcohol-related accidents among Good Sports club members and supporters by 42%.
