Grants to help clubs be ready when local sport returns

The Southern Cross Gliding Club will install a glider training simulator at their clubhouse.

Bringelly Netball Club will provide umpire and coaching courses.

Oran Park Cricket Club will put on a level two coaching clinic, offer first aid courses and a club governance strategy workshop, plus subsidised uniforms for their players.

Camden Junior AFL Football Club – the fourth local organisation to receive funding in the latest round of the NSW local sport grant program – will buy training balls, match balls and uniforms.

Member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves said the grants from a pool of $4.6 million would assist local sporting organisations as Covid-19 restrictions slowly ease.

“Sport is a vital part of the fabric of the Camden community. We have so many passionate sporting organisations,” Mr Sidgreaves said.

“These grants will provide essential funds to help our organisations increase participation as we slowly ease restrictions and will benefit our community in the long run.

“We are all looking forward to seeing community sport return to normal when it is safe to do so and this money will provide vital funds to help organisations be ready to resume as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted,” he said.

“Some organisations will buy uniforms for kids to relieve financial pressures on families whilst others will increase female participation and leadership in sport.

“Women’s sport has experienced enormous success and growth both on and off the field in recent years and we want that momentum to be revived after the worst of Covid-19 has passed.”

The local sport grants program offers up to $20,000 for projects which focus on development and participation, access and facility development. For further information visit:
