The Central Coast Academy of Sport has received a funding boost with Central Coast Council endorsing a one-year sponsorship to the value of $44,150.

Council has a significant Sponsorship Program in place that provides a contribution in money or in-kind support to an activity in return for a certain specified benefit.

Sponsorship is provided to assist groups, organisations and businesses seeking support for initiatives that provide benefits to the Coast community.

The additional funding to the Central Coast Academy of Sport is the final funding from the 2019-2020 Sponsorship Program.

Mayor Lisa Matthew said community sponsorship remains a key priority for Council for the betterment of the entire region.

“Since its inception in 2004, the Central Coast Academy of Sport has provided locally based sports development opportunities for athletes, coaches, officials and administrators within the Local Government Area,” Cr Matthews said.

“Both the former Wyong and Gosford Councils supported the Academy, and we’re delighted to continue this strong relationship with this additional sponsorship.

“I would encourage eligible groups to apply for sponsorship when the next round opens for the 2020-21 financial year.”
