It's not OK has released a toolkit called "Not our game" to help sports clubs and teams of any sports code play an active role in preventing family violence.

Sports clubs and organisations play an important part in the lives of New Zealanders and provide a good opportunity to address our country's high rate of family violence.

notourgame2No matter how big or small your club, there are many things you can do to prevent family violence.

Simple actions can send powerful messages out to players, coaches, volunteers, their families, sponsors and the community as a whole that family violence is not OK, that it is OK to ask for help and to help others.

The toolkit is available as a booklet. Resources such as sports-themed posters are also available from the website below;
