We have a number of resources available to us and our members through our partnership and cooperation with a number of leading organisations.
Run by the Alcohol and Drug Federation, Good Sports helps clubs improve the way alcohol is managed, keep our members safe by creating smoke-free areas, promote healthy eating and nutritional practices, offer safe transport options, reduce mental health stigma and promote mental health support.
Clubs who have reached the highest accreditation level of Level 3 (as we have) can proudly say that we meet all legal compliance needs and have taken steps that will in turn lead to safer and healthier members, access to revenue streams outside of alcohol sales, access to greater sponsorship opportunities, an improved club culture and ultimately increased memberships.
Play By The Rules
Play By The Rules provides information, resources, tools and free online training to increase the capacity and capability of administrators, coaches, officials, players, parents and spectators to assist them in preventing and dealing with discrimination, harassment, child safety, inclusion and integrity issues in sport.
You will see many of their infographics and posters around the club, helping us to promote an inclusive, safe and fair environment at the Gawler Rangers. Their website is a treasure trove of information regarding how to tackle any tricky issue within a sporting club, and our coaches are provided with plenty of guides to help them throughout the season.
An initiative from the Government of South Australia, the Sports Vouchers program provides an opportunity for primary school aged children from Reception to Year 7 to receive up to a $50 discount on sports membership/registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport by reducing cost as a barrier to participate.
Gawler Rangers have been accepting Sports Vouchers since the implementation of the program and can talk you through the process of claiming your voucher.
A STARCLUB is a well-run club where quality coaches and officials work alongside valued volunteers in a safe and welcoming environment. Introduced by the Office of Recreation and Sport in 2015, the program offers clubs measurable criteria, information and support to build so it can provide the best environment possible for members and the wider community.
