The Huntingdale Junior Football Club recognises that passive smoking (inhaling second-hand smoke) is hazardous to health and that non-smokers should be protected from tobacco smoke.
Passive smoking can lead to other serious illnesses such as bronchitis, lung cancer, cardiovascular disease, and chest illnesses in children.
Accordingly policy has been developed by Huntingdale Junior Football Club to help protect people’s health.

The move to go SmokeFree also complements the Huntingdale Junior Football Club’s desire to create a healthy family friendly environment.
The Huntingdale Junior Football Club believes that such an environment and image will be advantageous in attracting new members and positively promoting the club in the community.

Legislation and the legal duty of care also provide reasons to have a SmokeFree club.
Under common law the Huntingdale Junior Football Club has a legal duty of care to ensure that employees, volunteers, players and officials are not exposed to potentially harmful situations.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act also stipulates that employees and working volunteers must have a safe environment to work in.
WA SmokeFree dining legislation also states that enclosed dining areas must be SmokeFree.

This policy applies to all members, administrators, officials, coaches, players and visitors of the Huntingdale Junior Football Club.
