Better choices

The NRL and the NSW Government launched a series of educational modules, known as 'Better Choices', which teach teenagers how to make better decisions in real life situations to avoid serious and lifelong consequences.

The program includes scenarios based around alcohol misuse, illicit drugs, respectful relationships, filming and distribution of private acts without consent, violence on and off the field, social media and cyber-bullying.

It consists of five modules which can be utilised by Junior Rugby League Clubs and youth competitions across NSW.
