Run a successful fundraising event without the use of alcohol. 
We’ve compiled a list of some of our favourite activities for fundraising, without the alcohol!
Why should my club have an illegal drugs policy?
When it comes to tackling illegal drugs, it’s important to have a game plan. The Tackling Illegal Drugs Program is all about preparing sporting clubs to address illegal drug-related issues for if, or when, they occur.
As your club heads back for the season, it’s worthwhile asking whether your sporting club is a Good Sports Junior club.
Good Sports Junior enables sporting clubs to strengthen initiatives around alcohol, tobacco, healthy eating and positive playing environments. The result is stronger, healthier and more family-friendly community sporting clubs.


After a short Christmas/New Year break the Club is ready to begin its 2019 season.
The Club has entered the following teams in the 2019 VVL season (tap on the team to see details of coach, training venue and dates for team selections)
