Sporting Schools Club Connect (Club Connect) aims to enable primary schools to build on their involvement in the Sporting Schools program by establishing and building on relationships with local sporting clubs.
Eligible schools can apply for a grant of $5,000 (GST exclusive) to deliver an out of school hours sport program by engaging a Club Connect partner sport. Grants will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
