The Love the Game round is an annual campaign to raise awareness of the risks of sports betting for young people.
During May 2022, the Love the Game round focused on the role of coaches.
Coaches in professional and community sport are leaders of their team and play a vital role in developing players.
The first generation to grow up with gambling advertising is now the largest group of sports bettors in Victoria.
Don’t wait until they turn 18 – coaches can make a game plan to talk to their players now about the risks of sports betting during their Love the Game round.

- ensure your club joins the program
- plan to host a round
- hear from expert coaches in the virtual forum, The game plan – creating a culture for success.
- access coach resources
