“After two years of covid, volunteer community groups have done it tough and this is a chance for clubs to refresh their supplies without breaking the budget”.
“New uniforms and equipment will also help limit expenses for parents while giving clubs the tools they need to help attract more youngsters onto the field, pitch, or court,” he said.
There are five categories of grants on offer up to the value of $10,000. Applications are now open for clubs with members under 20 years of age and close Friday October 7, 2022.
