The WACA in partnership with Healthway and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation’s (ADF) Good Sports Program, has been assisting cricket clubs across WA in promoting good health and wellbeing, as well as creating environments for the responsible consumption of alcohol through its Alcohol.Think Again Senior Club Program.

Aligning with the WACA’s aim of fostering positive club culture, the program is designed to assist clubs in assessing how they perform off the field, and help put strategies in place to improve their club health and long-term sustainability.

Senior cricket clubs are required to complete the Good Sports Level 1 program to be eligible for the Alcohol.Think Again Senior Club Program.

Healthway Director of Health Promotion Julia Knapton said it was fantastic to see clubs throughout WA placing the health and wellbeing of their participants at the forefront of their activities.

“The partnership between Healthway, the WACA and Good Sports is very effective in developing healthy, thriving, inclusive clubs,” Ms Knapton said.

“I’d like to congratulate Leschenault Cricket Club and Warwick Greenwood Cricket Club for being frontrunners in fostering a positive club culture on and off the pitch.”

WACA CEO Christina Matthews said;

“Our partnership with Healthway and the ADF Good Sports Program has enabled us to provide the necessary tools to improve cricket club health and sustainability, and we’re seeing the positive changes at a community grassroots level.

“The wellbeing and health of our cricket communities is one of our main priorities, and programs of this kind will ensure cricket continues to have a positive and meaningful impact on the WA community.”
