Eight local sport clubs will share in $39,000 from the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said sport plays a critical role in bringing the community together.
“Community sport has an incredible capacity to bring people together and I am delighted that a number of local sport clubs have taken advantage of this funding,” Mr Crouch said.
“Macmasters Beach Surf Life Saving Club will install security cameras around their clubhouse and purchase swimming buoys thanks to a $13,967 grant.
“$11,256 will be provided for Central Coast Basketball Stadium to purchase and install new basketball rings.
“At Terrigal Rugby Club, a $3,500 grant will enable the Club to acquire additional supplies of training equipment to cater for their growing player numbers.
“Saratoga Sailing Club will receive $3,000 to purchase a new outboard motor for the Club’s rescue boat.
“Kincumber Roos Football Club will benefit from accreditation courses for dozens of volunteer coaches thanks to a $2,000 grant.
“The fantastic team at Central Coast Baseball Association will receive $2,000 for a flammable storage cabinet for on-site ground maintenance equipment.
“$2,000 will go towards two new laptops at Terrigal BMX Club for the purpose of racing sign-on, scoring systems and club administration.
