The Armadale Sports Club and Chadstone Lacrosse Club in Malvern can look forward to a share in $2,000 worth of Victorian Government funding towards rejuvenating their club’s uniforms courtesy of the Sporting Uniform Grants Program.
Member for Malvern Michael O’Brien said the two clubs will receive grants of $1,000 each as part of the recent funding from the latest round of the popular program.
“Team uniforms are more than just colours; they represent local sporting traditions and community pride,” Mr O’Brien said.
“This funding boost will not only benefit existing club players, but hopefully attract new members who are also keen to show their support for their club and look and feel part of the team,” he said.
The clubs were among a total of 448 across Victoria to share in more than $435,000 worth of Sporting Uniform Grants Program funding.
Minister for Sport and Recreation, Hugh Delahunty said the Sporting Uniform Grants Program aims to reduce financial barriers to participation by providing sporting clubs with an opportunity to purchase new uniforms, or a range of related items for club members including team tops, shorts, socks and footwear.
“These grants will assist sporting and recreation clubs to invest in new uniform clothing and footwear. This will attract and accommodate new members, helping to increase participation in sport as well as nurture talent,” Mr Delahunty said.
“New uniforms can go a long way towards boosting team morale and encouraging healthy and active communities, and that’s why we’re proud to continue to deliver this initiative,” he said.
