Funds for polocrosse

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Trafal­gar Polocrosse Club mem­bers rep­re­sent­ing Vic­to­ria at the Aus­tralian Na­tional Polocrosse Cham­pi­onships have re­ceived Baw Baw Shire spon­sor­ship.

Coun­cil has al­lo­cated $500 to each of the eight club mem­bers rep­re­sent­ing Vic­to­ria. The spon­sor­ship is avail­able through coun­cil’s com­mu­nity fund­ing as­sis­tance pro­gram.

In a sub­mis­sion to coun­cil, the club said its mem­bers were rep­re­sented in all age groups in­clud­ing un­der 12s, un­der 16s, un­der 21s, men’s and women’s teams.

The na­tional cham­pi­onships are be­ing held in Perth this month.

Cr Jes­sica O’Don­nell said it was a great achievement for the club to be send­ing so many play­ers to rep­re­sent Vic­to­rian teams.

She said the cost of travel and horse trans­port for the com­peti­tors was quite sig­nif­i­cant and the $500 per player would as­sist play­ers in meet­ing those costs.

Cr Peter Kos­tos said the Trafal­gar Polocrosse Club, which had been op­er­at­ing for 61 years was a “very unas­sum­ing club” and very ac­tive in the state’s polocrosse com­pe­ti­tion.

He said it was a sig­nif­i­cant achievement for the lo­cal play­ers from all around the shire to be com­pet­ing at a na­tional cham­pi­onships.
