Financial issues is our biggest hurdle. We will use this grant to release financial pressure for families. Participating in netball or any sport is not cheap. We often expect families to “buy” or “pay for” required uniforms, fees, etc to participate in sport, however this grant will provide the base for our members to fully participate in netball events in the next 12 months and beyond!
Project: Let’s Do This!
With the help of this grant, we will purchase netball uniforms (we currently do not have a netball uniform), training balls and match balls, sets of bibs, drink bottles, an esky, training shirts, gear bags and our ultimate purchase would be our very own “Team tent” for outdoor netball competitions and possibly a banner. We will also use this grant to help with court hire fees for training and entry fees for different tournaments.
This grant would also offer an opportunity for member/s to work towards becoming a certified “badged” netball umpire.
We would be able to plan an “Activity day” that will consist of a netball clinic (attack and defensive skills via an accredited sports performance group), education on injury prevention and healthy habits (this will involve a shopping tour/s at our local Woolworths store). If time, location and costs permit, the “Activity Day” may turn into a weekend camp.
