"Ask not what your sport can do for you, but ask what can you do for your sport".
The Queensland Government’s Get in the Game initiative supports sport and recreation at the grassroots level.
Get in the Game comprises three new funding programs worth $18 million over the next three years.
Get Started, Get Going and Get Playing are designed to get more people, especially children and young people, playing sport and involved in recreation activities.
Information on the three Get in the Game programs is provided below.
Get Started assists children and young people who can least afford or may otherwise benefit from joining a sport or recreation club. Eligible children and young people are provided with a voucher of up to $150 to help pay for club membership and participation fees. The vouchers can be redeemed at a sport or recreation club registered with the program.
Get Going supports local sport and recreation organisations with funding of up to $10,000 for projects that create opportunities for more Queenslanders to become members.
Get Playing provides up to $100,000 in funding to assist local sport and recreation organisations with facility development so more Queenslanders are encouraged to become involved in the sport or recreation activity of their choice.
Community information sessions will be delivered in various locations across the state. Find out where an information session ( http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/funding/getinthegame/infosessions.html ) is being held near you.
