Hastings Electorate residents will have more opportunities to get active and play sport as coronavirus restrictions gradually ease, with local sporting clubs to improve the health of the community.
With junior sport competitions kicking off and non-contact sport resuming for adults, many Victorians are wanting to stay healthy and get active again.
VicHealth CEO, Dr Sandro Demaio said Active Club Grants will support sporting clubs to encourage locals to enjoy better health through community sport.
“As our daily lives and routines continue to change, it’s vital we continue to be physically active and socially connected, and joining a local sports club is a great place to start,” Dr Demaio said.
“We know sports clubs are the heart and soul of their communities and we’ve heard from so many Victorians who’ve really missed playing the sport they love and seeing their team mates.
“These grants create more opportunities for Hastings Electorate residents to get involved in their local clubs, so we encourage everyone to check out what’s on in their area and give it a go while supporting sports clubs.”
Local clubs funded in Hastings Electorate were: Tyabb Football Club
