In2Sport Applications Now Open

Females and first time applicants are encouraged to apply for the Brimbank In2Sport Program membership subsidy program and join a local sporting club this summer.

A priority application period for females and first time applicants is now open ahead of all other eligible applicants on 18 September for participation in the upcoming summer season.

Under the program, applicants are eligible for up to $200 financial assistance (up to 75 per cent of the membership cost) to contribute to club fees, provided children are aged between 6 and 18 years, live in Brimbank and their name is listed on a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card.

The subsidy for successful applicants is passed on directly to the sports clubs through Brimbank City Council.

This round of the program will consider applications for participation in summer and year round sports, including cricket, little athletics, baseball, softball, tennis, badminton, basketball, martial arts, netball, swimming (squad), table tennis and volleyball.

How to apply:

  • Complete an online application form at brimbank.vic.gov.au. You will need to upload a copy of your family’s Health Care Card or Pension Card to complete the online application.
  • Download and complete the hard copy application form and submit it to Council for validation. Attach a copy of your family’s Health Care Card or Pension Card.
  • Council will validate your application form and return an Approval Form if successful.
  • You submit the Approval Form to your club upon joining, and pay any difference in membership fees (membership fee minus approved In2Sport Brimbank funding).
  • Your club will then invoice Council for the approved cost of the fees up to $200 per child, after we have approved the applicant, and you’ve paid your share of the membership fee.

Visit the Brimbank In2Sport Program for more information or call 9249 4000.

This is a unique opportunity to showcase services and engage with communities seeking information and connections in the Disability Sector. Your support will add to the overall success of the Expo.
