Our thoughts go out to everyone across the region who has been or will be impacted by flooding. The images we see both from individuals and sporting clubs are devastating, but seeing strangers come together to help their community is heartwarming. We particularly love seeing sporting clubs calling for and organising volunteers to help with prevention and recovery efforts.
We encourage you to reach out to your club members to check on their wellbeing. We know that for many people, sporting clubs are a major source of physical, mental and social wellbeing, so for some, knowing their club is thinking of them may be a big help.
We understand that many of you will still be dealing with your own personal circumstances, however when the time is right to return to your club, Valley Sport and Regional Sport Victoria (RSV) are here to help.
Flood Recovery Website
Regional Sport Victoria has developed a website resource to keep clubs updated with flood recovery information relating to sporting clubs, including grants. As further information comes to light, this page will be updated accordingly, so keep an eye on our updates and this webpage to ensure you are across everything available to assist your club.
