Four grassroots sport clubs and organisations in Yuroke are set to bolster their coaching skills, administration expertise, or score new sports equipment thanks to a share in more than $6,000 from the Victorian Government.

Member for Yuroke Ros Spence MP today announced the successful applicants from Yuroke of the latest round of the Victorian Government’s Sporting Club Grants Program. This is the fourth group of successful funding recipients to be announced.

The grants provide clubs with up to $1,000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $5,000 for training coaches, officials and volunteers, up to $5,000 to improve club operational effectiveness and up to $5,000 to help sports get back on their feet after the pandemic.

Grant recipients include Eritrean Families in Hume and the North who scored $1,000 to hold sporting tournaments for young people, Landmark Community Sports Club who will be receiving $1,000 for a shuttlecocks for adults and kids program, Lautoka Blues Soccer Club Victoria Inc who scored $2,000 for the 2021 Lautoka Blues, and Roxburgh Park United Soccer Club which is receiving $2,000 for cleaning, sanitisation products and signage.

The Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to make sport more accessible and inclusive, stimulate local economies, build sustainable sport and recreation and volunteer opportunities and increase local participation as coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

Since 2014, the Victorian Government has provided more than 5150 sporting club grants totalling more than $7 million to clubs across the state.
