Avon Valley Gazette - - OPINION -

SCOUT groups are up­set their mem­bers will no longer be el­i­gi­ble for State Gov­ern­ment Kid­sport fund­ing as their ac­tiv­i­ties are not clas­si­fied as sport. Very dis­ap­point­ing to see these ac­tiv­i­ties dropped by the State. - Julie Phelps It should be clas­si­fied as a sport for this pur­pose. Kid- sport was sup­posed to help en­cour­age kids to be ac­tive and en­cour­age par­ents too, but not ev­ery kid likes sports ( and not ev­ery par­ent ei­ther). Scouts is a great way for these kids to get in­volved in some­thing ac­tive and scouts also gives them sim­i­lar so­cial, dis­ci­pline and team skills, as well as other awe­some life skills. - Me­sha Des­mond
