Indigenous Round 2018 – Grants and Info Kit

It has been fantastic to see a range of sporting clubs take the opportunity to host Indigenous Rounds across Gippsland over the last few years, including Football, Netball, Basketball and even Pony Clubs.

Clubs involved have all reported many benefits and good news stories from their events.

With momentum growing around Indigenous Rounds, GippSport and Deadly Gippsland have developed an Information Kit and a small Grants program to assist clubs in 2018.

The Information and Resource Kit has been put together as a reflection of 2016 & 2017 events across Gippsland and includes contact details of clubs who held events last year.  The kit steps clubs through the process of considering an event, planning activities, engaging local community members, what clubs can do and where to find funding.

Harvey Norman: Team Harvey Junior – closes 30 April 2018

Harvey Norman is leading the push to promote female athletes to ensure they get the support they need and the recognition they deserve.

Team Harvey Junior is an initiative that provides sponsorship for junior female sporting teams to help ensure a bright future for young girls in sport in Australia.

Sponsorship can make a big difference to local junior sportswomen – it can help provide new uniforms, the acquisition of new equipment, cover training or travel expenses, and help with resurfacing a court or pitch.

With that in mind, the search is now on for female teams to join Team Harvey Junior – with ten $5,000 sponsorships to be won*¹.

If you know a local junior girl’s sporting team that would appreciate some extra support, encourage them to check out all the details and register online at Harvey Norman.
