The Andrews Labor Government is giving three Mitchell Shire sporting clubs the tools and resources it needs to grow.

Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today announced Broadford Football Netball Club, Seymour and District Amateur Swimming Club and Seymour Cricket Club will receive funding from the Labor Government’s Sporting Club Grants Program.

The Broadford Football Netball Club has been awarded a $1000 grant, Seymour and District Amateur Swimming Club $952.80 and Seymour Cricket Club $1000 for uniforms and equipment.

“With new equipment and improved resources, I am sure these three local clubs will continue to prosper and attract new and upcoming talent,” Ms Symes said.

“The Labor Government understands the importance of community sporting clubs, it is where families connect, kids strive to be the best they can be and beginners become stars,” Ms Symes said.

“Country Victoria loves its sport and the Labor Government is committed to giving our emerging crop of stars the best chance of becoming champions.

Ms Symes said the Labor Government is committed to making community sport part of the lives of all Victorians, and the Sporting Club Grants Program does just that.

“Sporting clubs, like these in Broadford and Seymour are the lifeblood of our country suburbs and towns, where kids learn valuable life lessons and enjoy great moments,” Ms Symes said.

“Victoria is the sporting state, and the Labor Government wants us to stay that way.

“The Sporting Club Grants Program is just one of the Government’s initiatives that keep kids happy and healthy, communities active and local clubs strong.”
