Sporting clubs across regional South Australia are being urged to shine a spotlight on their community hubs and volunteers as nominations open for the Good Sports Awards.
Importantly, the initiative seeks to celebrate Australia's best local sports clubs and volunteers who work tirelessly to build and maintain healthy and family-friendly environments.
"This year we've seen many inspirational Good Sports clubs going above and beyond to keep members connected, engaged and healthy, despite coronavirus restrictions," Alcohol and Drug Foundation CEO, Dr Erin Lalor said.
"Even if your club's season has been cut short this year due to COVID-19, celebrating your wins and achievements is the perfect way to boost club morale and keep members feeling proud and connected," Dr Lalor added.
Entering the awards is easy, and Good Sports clubs may qualify for multiple categories.
This year's categories are:
- Club of the Year
- Club Champion
- Healthy Eating Club of the Year
- Healthy Minds Club of the Year
- Junior Club of the Year
- Safe Transport Club of the Year
- Rookie Club of the Year
- Tackling Illegal Drugs Club of the Year
Winners are set to be announced at a ceremony early next year.
