  • SLSNZ will not be running an After Party Sunday night this year.  Below is some information for Team Managers and Clubs to think about if you are going to organise an afterparty for your club members.  
  • Hosting a party can be as fun as the event itself, but every responsible host knows that it's only a great time if every guest gets home safely.Here are some tips to help you throw an entertaining and safe party:
    • As guests RSVP, confirm that they have a plan for a safe way home via a non-drinking designated driver (rideshare service, public transportation, taxi, etc.).
    • Plan activities like party games or door prize drawings that do not involve alcohol and engage people, resulting in a lower consumption of alcohol.
    • Do not push drinks! Drinking at a party is not mandatory for having a good time.
    • Provide plenty of food to keep your guests from drinking on an empty stomach.
    • Avoid too many salty snacks, which tend to make people thirsty and drink more.
    • Offer non-alcoholic beverages or mocktails for non-drinking designated drivers and others who prefer not to drink alcohol.
    • Never serve alcohol to someone under 18 and never ask anyone under 18 to serve alcohol at parties.
    • If, despite your efforts, some of your guests have had too much to drink, never let them drive home impaired.  
    • Have the number of a taxi service or a rideshare app on hand or offer your sofa to guests who need to stay put.
    • Have fun - but not too much fun.  To be a good host, you should stay within your limits in order to make sure your guests stay within theirs.
