There’s never been a better time to get In2Sport

Applications now open for 2014/2015 In2Sport Brimbank Program

Whether it’s cricket, tennis, athletics or even netball that your family has an interest in, there’s never been a better time for young people to get involved in local sport with applications now open for Brimbank’s 2014/2015 In2Sport Program (for summer and year round sports).

In2Sport Brimbank is a membership subsidy program that provides an opportunity for children living in Brimbank to actively participate in sport and recreation, regardless of their financial circumstances.

To be eligible for up to $200 financial assistance to contribute to club fees, children must be aged between 6 and 18 years, live in Brimbank and be a member of a family holding either a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card.

Since February last year, we’ve helped more than 550 local young people to become involved in organised sport and recreation opportunities in Brimbank through In2Sport. About 290 of these young people had never been involved in organised sport before.

Cricket Victoria gets behind the program

Cricket Victoria has put its support behind In2Sport Brimbank by committing up to $8000 funding for the 2014/2015 summer application round, specifically to boost local cricket club participation.

Australian cricketers, James Pattinson and Elyse Villani, even came along to the launch of the program at Mother of God Primary School in Ardeer last week to show their support and help some local students improve their cricket skills.
