Sports clubs getting helpful cash boosts

NINE sporting clubs will benefit from $60,000 in community grants announced by North Lakes Sports Club.

CSC group sport and community manager Tony Clarke said an estimated 2200 local sports people would benefit from the funding, including 191 registered sporting teams across the nine winter-season sporting clubs.

"Although the North Lakes Sports Club is yet to open its doors to the public, this grant is evidence of our commitment to providing for sport and community groups across the North Lakes region,” Mr Clarke said.

The $60,000 funding grant includes cash support to the nine local sporting clubs as well as funding to assist with the fit-out of the soon to be completed Kinsellas Sports Complex Clubhouse.

One of the clubs to receive funding, North Lakes Mustangs Soccer, has signed up over 550 players for their 2017 season.

Mustangs president Chris McMahon said the funding had already had a major impact on the club's programs.

"Thanks to funding from North Lakes Sports Club, we have been able to immediately restart our inclusive sport program and have secured BFPP's founder Jay Larkins to deliver the program,” he said.
