The Member for Melton, Don Nardella MLA, today announced the Melton Hockey Club Inc. will receive a grant made available to help Victorian clubs dress for success.
The Andrews Labor Government’s Sporting Uniform Grants Program gives clubs the opportunity to replace old kits with new uniforms, including team tops and short, socks and footy boots. In total, 336 clubs across Victoria will receive grants of up to $1000. Club colours represent achievement, a sense of belonging and community traditions.
The Labor Government’s program alleviates some of the costs associated with grassroots sport, taking the pressure off all Victorian families. It encourages even more Victorians to live active and healthy lifestyles and keeps communities connected.
The Labor Government is committed to making sport and recreation more accessible for all Victorians. The Government will spend $100 million upgrading community sporting facilities over the next four years, including $10 million on upgrading female change rooms and $10 million on improving cricket facilities.

Athletes get a real sense of pride when they don their club colours to represent their community. The Andrews Labor Government is ensuring they are dressed for success.
This program takes the pressure off families, ensuring all Victorians are able to live healthy lifestyles and connect with the community thanks to the help of sport.
Don Nardella MLA, Member for Melton said:
Melton has a proud history of producing fine athletes. Perhaps our national stars of tomorrow will be able to say they cut their teeth wearing a Melton Hockey Club uniform.
