VicHealth is inviting Victoria’s community sporting clubs to address these factors by either creating new sport opportunities or by implementing, within your own club, an existing program created by a State or National sporting organisation.
The funding will prioritise two outcome areas: ($3,000 and $10,000 tiers)
- Focus area 1: Female participation
– new teams
– new competitions
– new programs.
- Focus area 2: Participation in social and modified forms of sport
Social sport opportunities are more flexible or social and less structured than traditional sport activities.
These programs have greater emphasis on fun, social interaction and enjoyment, and less emphasis on performance, results and competition.
Social sports may have many elements of traditional sport but are primarily
- for fun and friendship
- to introduce someone to a sport
- to bring people back to sport that have dropped out due to injury, time commitments or other circumstances.
Modified sports are existing sports activities which have had changes made to best suit the needs and abilities of inactive or somewhat active people, and increase the accessibility of activities to a wider audience.
This may include changes to rules, type of equipment, playing area, duration of games and/or scoring to suit skill level/ability.
Sport activities and programs can be modified based on factors, including age, disability, skill level, fitness level, facility availability, location or time and includes
- introductory junior programs
- sport-based fitness programs (e.g. Cardio Tennis, Fit Football)
- programs designed for people with a disability.
