Our Involvement

Maitland Touch Association is proud to be Good Sports accredited.

A program run by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF), the Good Sports program promotes healthy, family friendly community sporting clubs across Australia who meet a particular set of requirements for each level. Something which we are very proud of.

“Good Sports is an award winning program and has grown into the biggest health initiative in Australian sport, with a network that covers every level of sport – from grass roots to elite. We’re working to tackle key health issues of alcohol, smoking, obesity, and mental health.

“Clubs move through the three levels of the program over 3+ years and Good Sports is there to help every step of the way.” (Good sports website)

Clubs, like us, who are involved in Good Sports reap the rewards of having more participants, spectators, and sponsors, along with a vastly improved environment for children and families.
