Club development programs

We offer workshops to sports club members to enable volunteers to improve their skills and learn more about the important issues facing their organisation.  

Please ensure you RSVP to reserve your place. Workshops are held in person or via zoom in line with Covid requirements.

Grants and funding opportunities

Grant and funding opportunities for sports club are available throughout the year. Council can help support your club to understand the requirements, find opportunities and submit your application. Get help with sports club grants
