Last night our Good Sports program was awarded with a prestigious Hesta Community Sector Award!
Awarded at a gala dinner as part of the ACOSS National Conference in Adelaide, the Good Sports program received the Organisation Award for outstanding achievements of an organisation operating in the community sector from a field of more than 100 entries.
Good Sports is Australia’s largest preventive health program for the community sporting sector, with more than 5,600 community sporting clubs involved around Australia, reaching an estimated 1.5 million people.
Our Head of Community Programs Maree Sidey said she welcomed the recognition and thanked the participating clubs, supporters, funders and staff.
“Good Sports is a free program for sporting clubs across Australia and is unique in the way it is enabling people to adopt healthier lifestyles and build stronger communities at a grassroots level. Good Sports clubs are helping make sure the focus of community is on sport.”
