Wests Tigers grass roots clubs showing the way with the Good Sports program

The Wests Tigers grass roots clubs are leading the way with both Balmain and Western Suburbs Junior League clubs now committed to the Good Sports program.


Following Balmains commitment last year, Western Suburbs Junior League clubs agreed to join the program on Wednesday, which is run by the Australian Drug Foundation.


The Good Sports program is not about the eradication of alcohol but about making junior rugby league clubs as family friendly as possible.


It is a huge commitment that both the Balmain Junior Leagues and Western Suburbs Junior Leagues have made, not only to the program and the ADF but to the Wests Tigers and the game of Rugby League in general, Wests Tigers Community Manager, Yvette Downey said.


Alcohol and alcohol related instances touch everyones lives in some way,


As an NRL Club, the Wests Tigers are very proud of the step that it two founding districts, Balmain and Western Suburbs, are taking.
