Local sporting clubs and district associations play a big role in the health and wellbeing of communities, especially children and young people. To help clubs make healthy changes and continue to provide a healthy and happy environment for young people, community sporting clubs can apply for up to $4,000 in funding through Healthway’s Healthy Sports Program to implement healthy eating initiatives and improve canteen facilities.
The grant program is aimed to help increase healthy eating throughout the WA sporting community and the funding includes:
Up to $2,000 available for implementing healthy eating initiatives such as encouraging healthy eating and drinking pre, during and post game and ensuring game day rewards only promote healthy options.
Another $2,000 is available to clubs and district associations with a canteen or kiosk to improve their facilities and provide healthier options.
Successful recipients of the Healthy Sports Program grants will be connected to the Fuel to Go & Play team who will help support these healthy changes.
