Min-Man juniors receive funding boost

Min-Man junior footballers and netballers are set to benefit from a $5000 Active Club Grant, with plans to purchase new equipment and hold coaching clinics for the young sports players.

Member for Frome Geoff Brock presented Mintaro-Manoora Sporting Club president Aaron Ackland with a funding certificate last Friday and Mr Ackland said the club’s 160 junior players would benefit from the money.

“It’s not cheap to run a sporting club, with balls and equipment and we haven’t had a chance to buy new equipment for them for a while,” he said.

“We’ll also have some coaching clinic days as well.”

The funding was awarded through the Office for Recreation and Sport Round 43 Active Club Grant Program.
