    Event description

    Sports AWARE is a multifaceted Youth Solutions health promotion project for local sporting clubs that aims to prevent young sportspeople from experiencing drug and alcohol related harm by:

    • educating and empowering young players to be safe, and to keep others safe, around drugs and alcohol (through face-to-face interactive workshops)
    • increasing the knowledge and skills of coaching/club staff and parents and carers to ensure they can confidently and effectively support their young people around drug and alcohol issues (through online information sessions via Zoom)
    • interactive outreach activities and health promotion resource giveaways (at game day stalls and training sessions)

    These online information sessions for supporters will be held online via Zoom and will cover the following topics:

    • Introduction to drugs and alcohol (including information about the effects and harms of commonly used drugs and current drug use trends)
    • Strategies to identify young people who may be experiencing issues around drugs
    • Strategies to support young people who are experiencing issues around drugs
    • Information about local and national support services that can help young people experiencing issues around drugs and alcohol
    • Links to additional resources and further information and support

    Sports AWARE is funded by and delivered in partnership with Wests Group Macarthur.
