Are you preparing, or have recently re-opened? Here are some foolproof tips from the Victorian Commission for Liquor and Gaming Regulation (VCGLR) to help you stay compliant.

It’s been a while since most community sporting clubs have had a chance to host games and events.

Here are four quick things you can do to ensure the safety of members, guests, players and staff.

1. Review your licence

Now is a good time to refresh your memory around the conditions of your licence. Make sure club members and volunteers who work at the bar know these conditions and understand their obligations when serving alcohol.

2. Keep an eye out for under-aged drinkers

Remind anyone working behind the bar that they should be asking for ID from anyone who looks like they could be under the age of 25.

Need more info? Here is a minors checklist, minors video, and updated minors quiz to quickly and easily check your obligations.

3. Know your COVID-19 responsibilities

There will be some extra responsibilities to be aware of when re-opening after the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions. You can use this document as a guide but you should also check the government coronavirus information site in your state or territory for up-to-date information.

4. Re-read Club-specific guidelines

If you’re not 100 per cent sure of the rules around your licence, you can access a club-specific resource guide here and watch a series of videos outlining your responsibilities as a licensee, download information about running a fundraiser and much more on this page.
