Written on the 6 March 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly MP has today announced $9,568 in NSW Government funding to be shared among three sports clubs in the Riverstone electorate as part of the 2016/17 Local Sport Grant Program.
"Sport is a huge part of our way of life and the NSW Government recognises how important it is to our communities, for both social and health reasons," said Mr Conolly.
Funding has been provided to:
1. The Ponds Cricket Club for junior coaching accreditation courses ($2,000).
2. Quakers Hill Little Athletics Centre Inc for new public announcing and communications equipment ($3,068).
3. Super Sikhs Sports Association for youth uniforms and equipment ($4,500).
"The main aim of this program is to increase regular and on-going participation opportunities in sport and active recreation in our community. Sport is a huge part of our way of life and the NSW Government recognises that," Mr Conolly said.
"I am pleased the Local Sport Grants Program is conducted to help clubs make healthy sporting opportunities available to local people. I urge club officials to look out for next year's program or contact my office to register interest so that we can advise when next year's program is open," said Mr Conolly.
