Expressions of Interest for 2019/2020 Alpine Indigo Program are Now Open.
Learn Support Lead: Activating Female Leaders In Sport is a 12 month female mentoring and leadership program designed to activate the uptapped skills and experience of local women on and off the field.
Women continue to be under-represented in visible leadership roles across the sport and recreation sector. Grassroots sport and recreation clubs play an important role to drive positive change.
The program includes emerging leaders, and established leaders who will act as mentors. The program will guide participants through a series of workshops to build confidence, leadership capability, and develop networks within the North East region that will ultimately allow them to realise their leadership potential as players, coaches, administrators or committee members as well as other roles within their club.
We are seeking participants from a variety of sporting codes and experiences. Expressions of Interest are now open.
Please note workshops will be conducted on Wednesday evenings on a monthly basis commencing in August 2019 in the Alpine and Indigo Shires.
Through the Sporting Club Grants program, Sport and Recreation Victoria encourage clubs to apply for Category 3 funding under this program. Category 3 offers sports clubs up to $5,000 to improve club operational capacity. Should your club be successful in receiving this grant, Sport North East can assist clubs with creating and implementing a Fair Play Code.
We recently attended the ‘Funding Opportunities and The Fair Play Code’ forum facilitated by Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) in Yackandandah. The forum was well attended by members from the local sporting community. Thank you to all who came along, we hope the forum was helpful to you with your future projects in mind.
SRV encourages clubs to apply for Category 3 funding under the ‘Sporting Club Grants’ program. Category 3 offers sports clubs up to $5,000 to improve club operational capacity. Future grant recipients must adhere to the Fair Play Code, which includes creating and implementing a policy focused on fairness and equity at their club. Sport North East can assist clubs with creating and implementing policies of this nature, in addition to other policies such as a Child Safe Standards policy, and Code of Conduct.
