Providing Sporting Clubs A Chance To Win Big

16 June 2022

The Andrews Labor Government is helping community sport clubs win with grants for new uniforms and equipment, training, and club development.

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence announced applications are now open for the latest round of the Sporting Club Grants Program.

Clubs can apply for grants of up to $1,000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $5,000 for training coaches, officials and volunteers, and up to $5,000 to better club operations.

Previous recipients include Bacchus Marsh Baseball Association which scored $1,000 to purchase new baseballs and helmets for their ‘Kick-Start Program’, Foster Golf Club received $1,950 to undertake financial management training, and White Hills Bowls Club was awarded $5,000 to develop a strategic plan.

The program is part of the Labor Government’s work to make community sport accessible and inclusive, stimulate local economies and create opportunities for greater participation.

This round of the program is complemented by the Community Sport Sector COVID-19 Survival Package that provided $50 million to more than 7,500 clubs, leagues, state associations and other organisations across the sector.

The grants are part of the Government’s $1.2 billion investment in community sport and recreation infrastructure since 2014.
