Hundreds of sports and active recreation clubs across Victoria will benefit from the first round of VicHealth’s 2014-2015 Active Club Grants program.

VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said that round one of the grants has awarded more than $650,000 worth of grants to 270 successful clubs to tackle two major barriers that prevent people from taking part in sport and active recreation – cost and injury.

“These grants, of up to $3,000 each, aim to make clubs safer and more accessible by funding essential equipment like bats, racquets, uniforms and balls, and items to prevent or manage injuries, such as safety gear and first aid kits.”

“Sports and active recreation clubs are a great way to get involved in the community, meet new people and keep active for good health. We know from previous rounds that these grants encourage community members to try a new activity, support them to join their local club or continue playing their favourite sport,” Ms Rechter said.
