MULGOA SPORTING CLUBS SHARE IN FUNDING BOOST

Friday May 19, 2017

Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP has congratulated four sporting organisations from across the Mulgoa electorate upon receiving grants administered under the Local Sport Grants Program.

The aim of the Local Sport Grants Program is to increase regular and on-going participation opportunities in sport and active recreation.

“The very essence of this program is to recognise the undeniable talent and dedication emerging from local sporting organisations, as well as ensuring that the next generation of Australian sporting representatives are supported and fostered throughout their endeavours as grassroots athletes,” Tanya Davies said.

Four clubs from across Mulgoa will benefit from a massive funding boost for vital club activities from essential training to equipment to new uniforms:

  • $7,000 to St Clair Netball Club to train coaches and officials and purchase club jackets.
  • $5,000 to Colyton St Clair Little Athletics Centre Inc to purchase new hurdles.
  • $7,000 to Glenmore Park Junior Rugby League Club to accredit courses and buy new uniforms.
  • $5,000 to Glenmore Park Cricket Club for playing and training equipment.

“As many of the local sporting clubs in Mulgoa are largely ran by volunteers, the allocation of these local sports grants are critical to boosting infrastructure, programs and services to increase on-going participation in sport at a local level,” Tanya Davies said.
