Over the past six years the WACA has supported and promoted Healthway’s Alcohol.Think Again message and assisted Healthway in driving behavioural change across the WA cricket community, from elite levels down to grassroots clubs.

Two seasons ago, the WACA introduced the Alcohol.Think Again Senior Club program to assist Country clubs with practice and policy changes in relation to alcohol management and promotion. The program was extended to CricketWest clubs last season, leading to a total of 148 clubs now signed up across WA. The delivery of the program is supported by the Australian Drug Foundation.

Healthway Director of Health Promotion Ms Julia Knapton said it’s incredibly valuable to work with partners like the WACA who share Healthway’s goals by working collaboratively to make a positive community impact.

“Healthway are proud of the WACA’s commitment to prevent alcohol-related harm and provide access to alcohol-free environments that all Western Australians can enjoy.”

WACA CEO Ms Christina Matthews said “We are extremely proud of the partnership we have built with Healthway and the way it has been embraced by the WA cricket community. The impact has been significant in driving cultural change and creating positive, healthy experiences.

The ongoing partnership with Healthway aims to have more Western Australians living healthy lifestyles and will advocate for responsible behaviours around alcohol, while delivering quality resources and education throughout the cricket network.
