What is the Community Sports Club Program?

The Community Sports Club Program is a way for grassroots community sports clubs to support Dolly's Dream through awareness-raising and fundraising activities to foster a positive and inclusive club culture.

Partnering clubs will be equipped with resources and a values-based framework to educate their players and members about preventing bullying and cyberbullying and the importance of being kind.

  • Partnering clubs will be recognised as having a zero-bullying policy.
  • Clubs will be aligned with a reputable anti-bullying organisation.
  • Clubs can refer to the Dolly's Dream code of conduct to help address bullying issues on and off the field.
  • Full access to a dedicated Dolly's Dream team member.

TESTIMONIAL

Greater Palmerston United Football Club

"We chose to support the Dolly's Dream Community Sports Club Program as it is important for clubs to be proactive in modelling good sportsmanship, behaviour and kindness. We are a junior club with members from 5 to 14 years old, so we chose the message 'Kindness changes Everything'.

With the support of Football NT, we held all our Club games at Darwin Football Stadium in a Do It For Dolly Day round of football. We raised money through the Canteen, Raffle tickets and donations. In the spirit of kindness and good sportsmanship, we had all our teams, and opposing teams award a player on the opposite team a Certificate of Sportsmanship.

The Do It For Dolly Day round was a huge success. The shirts were a big hit, and we had parents asking if they could buy one! Overall we raised a total of $3,056!

We plan to make our Do It For Dolly Day of football an annual event. With the support of Football NT, we will be sourcing grants to help push the Dolly's Dream message. With the approval of Dolly's Dream, we will again create playing jerseys and coaching shirts so that when the day is over, our players will still have a constant reminder of 'Kindness'."
