Grass­roots sport boost

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

COM­MU­NITY grass­roots sport will get a boost over the next two years, with $10 mil­lion for the State Gov­ern­ment’s Sport 4 All pro­gram.

Com­pris­ing four ini­tia­tives in Kid­Sport, Na­ture Play, ClubTalk and the Com­mu­nity Vol­un­teer Project, the pack­age in­creases par­tic­i­pa­tion in com­mu­nity sport and recre­ation in West­ern Australia.

Sport and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mia Davies said that since its in­cep­tion in 2011, the hugely suc­cess­ful Kid­Sport pro­gram had seen more than 43,000 chil­dren aged be­tween five and 18 re­ceive up to $200 to join a lo­cal club to play sport.
