Good Sports Program ~ Level 2 in 2015
Albury United SC achieved level 2 in 2015.
Good Sports is working with 20% of clubs around Australia, that’s more than 6500 clubs and 1.8 million passionate people. Local sports clubs are the beating heart of the community and Good Sports is dedicated to making them stronger. We’re working with communities to create stronger, healthier and more family-friendly sporting clubs – helping them to gain new members and attract sponsors. The Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program is a progressive, three level accreditation program that helps clubs set standards around the key health issues of alcohol, smoking, obesity and mental health. To do this, we provide club volunteers with the resources, training and guidance they need to face these challenges head on.

MPIO’s (Member Protection Information Officers)
AUSC Officers – Caitlin Keogh & Dave Smith
Sport plays an important part in the lives of millions of Australians. There are multiple benefits to participation and many positive reasons why Australians flock to sport every day of the week. For the vast majority of us, sport is overwhelmingly positive and runs without problems or concerns.
Occasionally though, things can go wrong. When they do people need an avenue to raise their concern and make a complaint. This is when the Member Protection Information Officers (MPIOs) play an important role in sport. They are the person responsible for providing information and options to an individual making a complaint or raising a concern, as well as support during the process.
Importantly, they are not a person who investigates matters, advises, or advocates for the complainant.
