Every Club Grant Scheme

Eligible local governments are supported to build the governance, planning and management practices of sport and recreation clubs.

The Every Club Grant Scheme provides 3-year funding to enable organisations to support sport and recreation clubs to build their organisational capacity and capability with a focus on governance, planning and management practices.

The Every Club Program comprises of:

  1. Every Club Hub — access to online information and resources for sport and recreation clubs

  3. Every Club Education — provision of learning and development opportunities for the sport and recreation club development workforce
  4. Every Club Grant Scheme — investment into LGA sport and recreation club development plans.

The Every Club Grant Scheme aims to ensure sport and recreation clubs are supported to build their organisational capacity and capability through accessible and flexible club development services.

The department provides funding to eligible local governments to:

  • provide education, training and professional development opportunities for the sport and recreation club workforce
  • support sport and recreation clubs to adopt good governance, planning and management practices
  • demonstrate partnerships between LGAs, SSAs, regional sporting associations and sport and recreation clubs.
