Good News Sports began in 1998 after the appointment of Cameron Butler to the Melbourne Football Club in the AFL as their club chaplain. Working alongside athletes, coaches and sports management staff, including Player Managers and the AFL Players Association Cameron’s vision has been to assist sports communities around Australia care for their members more effectively and in a genuine caring manner.
From group-wide critical incidents like the Bali Bombing and Boxing Day Tsunami when Troy Broadbridge died to individual grief and loss like divorce, emotional breakdown and the consequences of poor choices Cameron has overseen numerous ‘care’ cases over the past 20 years. Including the past 8 years as CEO of Sports Chaplaincy Australia – a not-for-profit charity providing volunteer chaplains to sports around Australia.
