How does In2Sport help kids play sport?

Winter sports and year round applications are now open.

Summary

In2Sport Brimbank is a subsidy program that gets children playing sport by helping pay their membership fees!


In2Sport is an amazing opportunity for Brimbank children to participate in community sport regardless of their financial situation.

More than 800 kids have been funded to play sport in the last 18 months! More than 400 of them have never had played organised sport before!

Eligible kids between 6-18 years and whose family hold a health care card can apply for help paying club membership fees.

You can receive up to 75% of membership costs, up to a maximum of $200 per child per year. These fees will be passed on directly to the sports clubs through Brimbank City Council.

The winter application period is now open! Go to our In2Sport page to apply!

 

Sport = Friends
In2Sport also gets newly arrived culturally diverse communities, disadvantaged families, connected to local sports clubs some of whom are crying out for members. Simply: kids (and their families) make new friends and have fun!

 

Become an Affiliated In2Sport Club
Affiliated In2Sport clubs have a great opportunity to increase memberships whilst supporting local children to participate in sport.   Go to our In2Sport page for details about becoming an affiliated club.
