Eight local sport clubs will share in $39,000 from the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program, according to an announcement by Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch.
“Community sport has an incredible capacity to bring people together,” Crouch said.
“I am delighted that a number of local sport clubs have taken advantage of this funding.”
Macmasters Beach Surf Life Saving Club will install security cameras around their clubhouse and purchase swimming buoys with the help of a $13,967 grant, while another $11,256 will be provided for Central Coast Basketball Stadium to purchase and install new basketball rings.
“At Terrigal Rugby Club, a $3,500 grant will enable the Club to acquire additional supplies of training equipment to cater for their growing player numbers,” Crouch said.
Saratoga Sailing Club will also receive $3,000 to purchase a new outboard motor for the Club’s rescue boat, while the Kincumber Roos Football Club will benefit from accreditation courses for dozens of volunteer coaches courtesy of a $2,000 grant.
“The fantastic team at Central Coast Baseball Association will receive $2,000 for a flammable storage cabinet for on-site ground maintenance equipment.
“$2,000 will go towards two new laptops at Terrigal BMX Club for the purpose of racing sign-on, scoring systems and club administration.
Matcham Holgate Cricket Club will soon have new, portable scoreboards for junior and senior games thanks to a $2,000 grant.
“Each of these local clubs have received funding from the NSW Government because each project helps to increase sporting participation, enhance existing facilities or boost training opportunities for volunteers,” Crouch added.
