The Allan Labor Government is backing Werribee’s sporting clubs to break down barriers to participation and get more community members involved in local sport.

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence recently announced the latest recipients of the Sporting Club Grants Program with more than 400 grants of up to $4,000 going to local clubs across the state including here in Werribee.

The Sporting Club Grants Program provides grants to clubs for uniforms and equipment that improve accessibility and engagement, projects that strengthen volunteering and officiating, new sport or recreation programs to inspire more people to get involved, and support for athlete travel to competitions.

Werribee recipients include:

  • Inspirafit Inc received $823.90 to deliver first aid kits, training football jerseys and equipment with goalkeeper kits.
  • Werribee and District Anglers Club Ind received $1,000.00 to deliver new uniforms.
  • Werribee Districts Football Club Inc received $1,000.00 to deliver new goal post padding for secondary ground.
  • Werribee Masters Football Club received $1,000.00 to deliver new jerseys.

In this round, the program is also investing in local athletes to help them represent Victoria on the world stage. The Australian Deaf Sports Federation received $3,000 for the travel and accommodation costs of four Victorian athletes representing Australia at the 2024 World Deaf Golf Championships in August.

Since 2015 the Sporting Club Grants Program has invested more than $16.7 million to support thousands of community sport and recreation clubs across the state, helping grow grassroots sport and recreation and ensuring clubs have the skills and resources they need to succeed.
