Southport Australian Football Club (Southport Sharks) takes pride in its recognition as a leader within the Queensland Club Industry, and as a provider of superior service standards to both members and guests who utilise our facilities.
Accordingly, the Club has initiated a number of policies to ensure the maintenance of those standards, and to safeguard the safety and wellbeing of not only those persons utilising our facility, but the surrounding community as a whole.
Central to those initiatives is the Club’s Risk Assessment Management Policy, covering such matters as responsible service of alcohol, responsible provision of gaming services, security issues, legislative compliance and provision of services.
A guideline for use of club facilities by members and reciprocal members, their guests and visitors can be downloaded here. Members rules and regulations can be downloaded here.
