Smoke-Free Environments – Sports & Recreation

Tobacco and smoke-free sports mean that:

  • players, participants, coaches, sports administrators, leaders, officials, and spectators do not use tobacco and vaping products while involved in sporting activities;
  • participants and spectators of sporting events are not exposed to second-hand smoke; and
  • there is no tobacco and vaping product advertising, sponsorship or marketing at sports events or venues.
    (Source: Tobacco-Free Sports Program Handbook – Sports NB)

There are several important reasons why sports should be tobacco and moke-free, including;

  • to protect athletes, spectators, officials, and volunteers from the harm caused by second-hand smoke;
  • to help create supportive environments and positive social norms for tobacco and smoke-free behaviours;
  • to eliminate the mixed messages that the community receives through tobacco and vaping products advertising and its connection with sporting events; and
  • to send a message that the health of all of those involved in sports, whether as athletes, spectators, officials, administrators, or volunteers, is important.

The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition (NBATC) encourages coaches, parents, athletes, and volunteers to be Wellness Champions by educating on the dangers and risks of tobacco and vaping products use and making the conscious decision to ensure their team follows a tobacco and smoke-free policy.

Legislation & Policies

In addition to ensuring a no tobacco and vaping product use policy for your team, coaches should be aware of no-smoking/no vaping designated smoke-free environments required by the New Brunswick Smoke-Free Places Act, which, since July 2015, includes many outdoor settings where sports & recreation take place, such as:

  • on the grounds of a school; and 
  • on or within 20 metres of children’s equipment and sports areas located in an outdoor public place.

See our Smoke-Free Environments page for the complete list of all designated smoke-free spaces required by law in New Brunswick.
