Two grassroots sport and active recreation clubs and organisations in Eltham are set to bolster their coaching skills, administration expertise, or score new sports equipment thanks to a share in more than $900,000 from the Victorian Government.

Member for Eltham, Vicki Ward MP, today announced the successful applicants from Eltham of the latest round of the Andrews Labor Government’s Sporting Club Grants Program.

The grants provide clubs up to $1,000 for new uniforms and equipment, up to $5,000 for training coaches, officials and volunteers, and up to $5,000 to improve club operational effectiveness.

Grant recipients in Eltham include Eltham Junior Football Club who scored $2,000 to purchase First Aid Training for Coaches and EC Waves Swim Club Inc which is receiving $3,000 to their Strategic Plan.

The Sporting Club Grants Program is part of the Andrews Labor Government’s commitment to make community sport and active recreation more accessible and inclusive, stimulate local economies, build sustainable sport and recreation and volunteer opportunities, and increase local participation.

Since 2014, the Program has injected over $13 million to support clubs and last year provided a valuable funding lifeline to more than 4,000 clubs last year to help them through the pandemic.
