Case Studies

To create individual awareness and behaviour change there is a need for local stories about implementing the responsible use of alcohol.

The following case studies show how some Victorian sporting organisations have successfully implemented the responsible use of alcohol. For further support in making these changes work for your organisation, contact Good Sports, your State Sporting Association or sport development staff from local government.

If you are in regional Victoria, Regional Sports Assemblies provide volunteer support, information and training and development opportunities to local sporting organisations in rural and regional Victoria. Visit for more information.
