With about 500 players The Entrance Junior Rugby League Football Club (JRLFC) is one of the largest and most successful junior rugby league clubs on the Central Coast.
So news that changes in eligibility for the Active Kids Voucher could make it difficult for parents and carers to register their children for sports hit many families hard.
But The Entrance Leagues Club has come to the rescue, offering to help supplement registrations fees.
“The subsidy will be built into our registration fees meaning that the rego cost to parents is greatly reduced and in some instances it will be $10 (when used in conjunction with the Active Kids Vouchers),” a spokesperson for The Entrance JRLFC said.
“This will allow hundreds of local kids and families to participate in grassroots footy on the Central Coast.
“The subsidy will be for all of our junior players from Under 6-17.
“It is such an exciting initiative that we are proud to share with our families and community.
“We can’t wait for the 2024 season to begin.”
The Entrance Tigers Juniors Club is a community-based football club and aims to offer kids an opportunity to play football in a friendly, fun and safe environment.
“Through quality coaching we aim to build skills of all players and offer a positive football experience with team and family participation and skill development,” its mission statement says.
“We strive to create an environment where local kids grow not only as rugby league players but as respectful young adults.”
