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.

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 Sport Gippsland have developed an Information Kit and a small Grants program to assist clubs in 2017.
The Information and Resource Kit has been put together as a reflection of 2016 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.

The Holden Home Ground Advantage is supporting local sporting clubs for the next 10 years by committing $5 million to develop and improve their facilities. Twice a year Holden will provide $250,000 worth of grants to sporting clubs who need assistance – that’s $500,000 every year, for ten years.
Home Ground Advantage, is a program that provides local sporting clubs with the chance to invest in clubrooms, sporting grounds, equipment or general facilities so they can also continue to be a part of the Australian way of life.
You can apply for a grant for a project of $100,000 in value, or a grant for a project up to $100,000 in value. Clubs are welcome to submit separate applications for both grants. Please note that only one grant from the $100,000 grant pool will be awarded. The number of successful applications from the ‘up to $100,000’ grant pool will depend on the amounts requested. All of the $250,000 available in this round will be allocated.
You can apply for money through Home Ground Advantage for projects, or equipment, that make life easier for the members and supporters of your club. For example, you might want to make improvements to your clubrooms, install new hot showers, get a new scoreboard, or purchase new sporting equipment that will help your team perform on the field.
