Sport in the North

The Geelong Connected Communities Sport in the North grants program recognises that increased levels of participation in physical activity has health, social and economic benefits.

The purpose of the Sport in the North grants program is to increase sporting participation in the northern suburbs of Geelong, focusing on Corio and Norlane. It is recognised that sporting clubs in Corio and Norlane need additional support and resources with these suburbs of Geelong experiencing very high rates of disadvantaged youth. This grant program has been established to predominately support all junior sports up to the age of 19. As such this grant program will offer three grant categories that provide opportunities for sporting activities to take place. Refer to the Grant Criteria document available below.




The 3 grant programs are:

Athlete Membership and Uniforms
Equipment  and Club Mentor Development
Club Incentive Reward

This grant program is an initiative of local politicians, Richard Marles and John Eren.
