About the project

Sporting Chance is an initiative developed by Greater Shepparton City Council and delivered in partnership with FamilyCare, The Community Fund Goulburn Valley and the local community and sport sector.

Playing sport and being physically active is one of the best ways to live a long and healthy life. Sport plays a vital role in building healthy communities, particularly in a regional area.

One of the biggest barriers to playing sport for some children, young people and adults is cost.

The Sporting Chance program has been established to ensure Greater Shepparton residents aged 18 years or under can actively participate in sport and recreation, regardless of their means, through access to small grants up to $80 per applicant.

Grants can be used to assist individuals with club registration and membership fees for approved applicants.

We need your help to provide as many grants as possible, so please support this program by making a tax deductible donation today!
