Is your swimming club as well equipped as it could be? If the answer is no, look no further than Queensland’s new Go for Gold grant. As far as swimming grants in Queensland go, this opportunity could transform your meets and competitions.
Understanding the Program
The Go for Gold grant aims to prepare Queensland for the Brisbane 2032 Olympics. To help schools and communities increase sports activities and encourage participation, the Queensland Government has set aside $100 million over four years.
For swimming clubs around Queensland, this is an excellent opportunity to upgrade their equipment, for example by purchasing a Wylas timing system.
Applying for the Grant
Applying for the grant is simple. Round 1 applications are still open, and round 2 applications open soon. The entire application process is managed through schools, with priority given to those in areas with lower participation in sports.
How many clubs receive a grant will depend on the quality of the proposals submitted. That means there is a chance for everyone to get their hands on new sports equipment right now. It’s an opportunity not to be missed.
Benefits of the Grant
This first round of funding is dedicated to sports equipment, and school swimming clubs can receive as much as $5,000 in equipment grants. There is virtually no limit to the type of sport that may benefit. The Go for Gold grant is aimed at traditional as well as emerging sports.
What the Queensland Government is really looking for is to encourage active play and increase widespread participation in different sports. The goal is to use existing sports infrastructure more effectively. What better way to utilize this swimming grant in Queensland than to install a state-of-the-art timing system?
