A life saver for soccer in Drouin

Thursday, 22 May 2014

The Dragons Soccer Club in Drouin is set to take first aid training to a new level thanks to a $1,045 funding boost under the latest round of the Victorian Coalition Government’s Country Action Grant Scheme (CAGS).

Visiting the club today, Minister for Sport and Recreation Damian Drum joined Member for Narracan Gary Blackwood to announce that the club’s first aid initiative, including anaphylaxis and defibrillation training, is one of 242 projects to share in more than $350,000 under the CAGS and Victalent programs in 2014.

“Week in, week out clubs like the Drouin Dragons Soccer Club host hundreds of Victorians of all abilities as they come together to play the sports they love,” Mr Drum said

“The Country Action Grant Scheme helps local sports organisations stay on top of their game by providing funds for better program delivery, administration, communication and in this case life-saving training.”

Mr Blackwood said the club will nominate five members to undertake level 2 First Aid Certification, with two members taking additional anaphylaxis management as well as defibrillation and CPR training. The aim is to ensure there’s at least one first aid qualified member available to assist at all matches on game days.

“Supporting local organisations to operate more effectively is just one of the many ways the
Napthine Government is building a better Victoria.

“By investing in great initiatives like these we can encourage more people to get involved in sport and recreation and help them improve their skills and physical wellbeing,” Mr Blackwood said.
