NOMINATIONS close tonight at midnight for the 2012 Good Sports Club of the Year awards.

Over 5000 sporting clubs across Australia are now involved in the program and all are encouraged to nominate their club for the title.

Orara Valley Axemen pioneered the Good Sports concept locally and it has since spread far and wide, not just through rugby league clubs but through surfing, tennis and just about any sport where families are involved.

The awards celebrate grass roots sporting clubs that best demonstrate the positive impact of the Good Sports program.

With alcohol ingrained in sporting culture, Good Sports works with clubs to manage alcohol and ensure the focus is on sport.

The program aims to create a family-friendly culture and reduce alcohol-related harm both within the club and the wider community.

Judges will be looking for clubs that have gone above and beyond to create a safer, healthier and more family-friendly environment.

The Good Sports Club of the Year winner receives a number of benefits including a cash prize of $2000, presentation of the award at the Australian Drug Foundation's Oration and their good news story promoting them far and wide.

In addition, the club will be promoted through the SportingPulse website which will ensure their profile carries throughout Australia.

For more information on the Good Sports National Awards visit www.goodsports.com.au or phone 1300 883 817.
