Club Support

GippSport, through the Regional Sport and Recreation Program funding, provides a range of information and resources, on club development and grants specifically for sporting clubs.

Listen to a summary of the type of work that we provide across Gippsland:

The aim of the Regional Sport & Recreation program is to help provide volunteer support, information and training and development opportunities to local clubs in rural and regional Victoria.

Specific activities that GippSport deliver through this program include:

  • Produce and distribute relevant and up-to-date information to local sport and recreation clubs and organisations on sport and recreation issues and opportunities;
  • Provide volunteer support and club development opportunities for local sport and recreation; and,
  • Support state sporting associations to deliver activities and projects in rural and regional Victoria.

GS_ClubehelpClub Help is for volunteers in sport and recreation clubs to assist with all aspects of running a successful club.

This website has a large amount of articles, downloadable templates, and samples to help your club. Browse the sections or go straight to the Helpful Resources in each section.

Fill out the online assessments to see how your club is doing. Each one only taking a few minutes of your time and located in the menu bar of each section. A personalised report will be emailed to you, containing clear ideas for action.

Use the ideas throughout the site to help build your club. If your club needs assistance at any stage throughout this process please contact us. We are funded to provide free support to any sports club across the Gippsland region.
