Earlier this year
Youth Players & Alcohol Education
Terrible news out of the West with a second promising junior in the space of three months tragically losing their life in an alcohol-related activity involving a vehicle overnight. The question I have would be what are the governing bodies doing to address this relevant issue, particularly Basketball WA now that two former state representatives have passed away in similar circumstances this year alone. They receive alot of sponsorship dollars from Healthway which has its relevant alcohol awareness programs, maybe its time BWA actually initiated an education program for all of their Under 16 and Under 18 players on the dangers of drinking and vehicles to prevent any further deaths in the future more than what is currently being offered.
