Netball Clubs and Associations across Victoria received a boost from Sport and Recreation Victoria last week with the announcement of the Round One recipients of the Sporting Uniform Grant Program 2014-2015.
282 sport and recreation clubs across 38 different sports were successful in gaining funding with SRV supporting these initiatives to help communities get more active, more often.
Netball Victoria CEO Michelle Plane said the initiative was crucial in helping a number of netball Clubs and Associations engage with their local communities.
“With help from the Sporting Uniform Grant Program we hope to see more people playing netball more often,” Ms Plane said.
“The SRV funding given to our Clubs and Associations really has a tremendous impact on the sport and local community.”
The Sporting Uniform Grants Program contributes to the Victorian Government’s sport and recreation policy priorities of increasing participation, supporting grass roots sport and recreation clubs to create physically active communities and nurture talent.
Club sport plays a big part in the life of local communities. Being part of a club provides a socially valued role for participants and creates a sense of community membership.
Encouraging community participation in sport and active recreation is an effective way of strengthening communities across Victoria.
