The Good Sports Awards 2023 are now open for nominations, and Tanya Thompson, Member for Myall Lakes, is urging local sporting clubs in her electorate to participate in this competition. These awards recognise the dedication and passion of community sporting clubs, regardless of their size or sporting code.

This year’s competition offers a total of $13,500 in cash prizes, which will be used to benefit the winning clubs in accordance with the Good Sports values. There are seven categories in which clubs can compete, each highlighting a different aspect of club excellence. Whether it’s recognising a champion volunteer, promoting junior member development, or supporting the mental health of club members, local clubs have the chance to celebrate their unique strengths.

Tanya Thompson, Member for Myall Lakes, expressed her enthusiasm for the Good Sports Awards saying, “The Good Sports program has been instrumental in creating healthy and inclusive club environments for over two decades. I encourage all eligible clubs in the Myall Lakes electorate to participate in this opportunity to showcase their dedication and community spirit.”

Good Sports is a program run by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF). Greg Howe, State Manager NSW for the ADF said: “The Awards shine the spotlight on success, celebrate the volunteers who are the backbone of Good Sports clubs and provide clubs with the recognition they deserve – helping attract new members and even more community support.”

To be eligible for entry, clubs must be registered as Good Sports clubs and not classified as professional sporting clubs.

Nominations for the Good Sports Awards 2023 will be accepted until 11:59 pm (AEST) on Sunday, November 12th, 2023.
