SPORT $$ GRANTS IN SCHOOLS 🏉 Another fantastic opportunity for our rugby clubs to engage with their local schools. But ACT NOW as expires at the end of this week. Clubs contact your local schools ASAP.

Sport Australia is offering grants of up to $5,000 per school to run an after-school sporting program that introduces children to grassroots sports and connects them with their local sporting club.

Sporting Schools Club Connect (Club Connect) aims to enable primary schools to build on their involvement in the Sporting Schools program by establishing and building on relationships with local sporting clubs.

Eligible schools can apply for a grant of $5,000 (GST exclusive) to deliver an out of school hours sport program by engaging a Club Connect partner sport. Grants will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

The focus of the initiative is to support primary school students to transition from a school-based sporting program to participating at their local sporting club, promoting a lifelong engagement in sport.
