Whyalla sporting clubs have the chance to score up to $5000 for programs and equipment in the current Active Club Program funding round.

Round 46 of the funding program closes on September 26. To help clubs submit their applications there will be an information session at the Council chambers next Wednesday (September 19).

This is real money for real Whyalla sporting club programs and equipment. In fact, there is $816,000 large in the kitty for Round 46 of this State Government funding program.

Sporting clubs can apply for up to $5000 in the Programs and Equipment Grant for costs associated with conducting programs to develop or improve the service the club provides and/or the cost of consumable equipment, uniforms or ground maintenance equipment.

In the last round of Active Club Program funding, Whyalla’s Steel City Hockey Club and the Steel United Soccer Club both scored $5000 for programs and equipment.

Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing, Corey Wingard said the program had provided $46m through more than 9800 grants to local organisations.

“Participating in recreation and sport activities is an important and enjoyable part of life for many South Australians,” he said.

“The ongoing funding through the Active Club Program means South Australians can continue to access quality recreation and sport activities and facilities, and enjoy the many social, health and lifestyle benefits this brings.

Through this support, the program has made a positive and lasting difference to the lives of many South Australians, their communities, and the organisations which play such an important role in them.”

To be eligble organisations must:

  • be a not-for-profit active recreation or sport club or community organisation whose purpose is the delivery of active recreation or sport programs and services in South Australia
  • be incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Act 1985 or have some other comparable legal status
  • have a minimum total membership base of 20 members. Total membership can include associate, social and life membership
  • provide most recent certified (signed by the club Treasurer) or audited Statement of Financial Performance (Income and Expenditure Statement) and / or Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet)
