VicHealth Active Club Grants

Help your local community club to get more Victorians active with VicHealth’s latest Active Club Grants! Around $500,000 in funding is available to help grow grassroots women and girls’ sport and social sport programs.

VicHealth is inviting community sport clubs to apply for an Active Club Grant. Grants for sporting clubs provide up to $3000 or $10,000 to increase participation opportunities for Victorians in community sport (excluding GST). Hundreds of clubs have already received an Active Club Grant and are doing fantastic things with their sporting club funding, helping their communities by getting more people active. Applications close on Friday, 8 March 2019.

Applications are open until 8 March 2019. Click here for all the details.

You can contact Sport North East for assistance with grant applications.

Learn Clay Target Shooting

Want to try a sport that is flexible, fun to learn and you can do with friends or on your own? Give clay target shooting a go.

The Wangaratta Clay Target Club is inviting women and girls (12 years and over) to learn clay target shooting on Tuesday evenings at 5:30pm-7pm from 5 February 2019 to 12 March 2019.

It costs just $17 to participate each week. You need to wear closed toe shoes and some eye protection (sunglasses or cheap safety glasses are fine). The club will supply everything else, including guns, ammunition, targets and ear plugs (or you can bring along your own ear muffs).

Register here and we’ll see you there.

This program is supported by VicHealth’s Regional Sport Program.

Alpine active living

Gateway Health, Alpine Shire Council and Alpine Health recently delivered the Alpine Active Living Mapping Project. The project focus was to find out what opportunities exist to support the population to be physically active in the Alpine Shire. You can find out what they discovered and recommended here.

Sport North East is partnering with the group to help deliver the recommendations in the Alpine Shire, including:

  • Physical Activity policy development
  • Walking and cycling path improvements
  • Free and family-oriented activity promotion and development (e.g. Sport North East’s School Holiday Program)
  • Promotion and education of existing events and facilities
  • Support for informal recreation opportunities and multiple-use sporting facilities
  • Support for building healthy environments in sports clubs and workplaces

Sport North East is excited to help create more opportunities for sport and active recreation in the Alpine Shire.
