The State Government has launched Active Victoria: A Strategic Framework for Sport and Recreation in Victoria - to put more focus into the economic benefits of sport for locals.
Active Victoria aims to provide a platform to grow these numbers and boost participation through a number of key areas.
The program will see the government map out Victoria’s sport and recreation landscape; from the number of local sporting clubs & participants to its economic benefit.
Sunraysia clubs and sporting groups can apply for up to $10,000 in grants under the VicHealth Active Club grants scheme for clubs who want to increase female participation or offer a modified sporting program to appeal to a wider audience.
Minister for Sport John Eren says with the fastest population in the country and record numbers of Victorians playing sport, they’re taking a good look at what we need in the future to cater for that growth.
