BAYSWATER Lacrosse Club has been awarded a grant from the Australian Sports Foundation to encourage more adults to get involved in the sport.
The club received $4000 as part of the Australian Sports Foundation’s Giving4Grassroots, which will go towards try-out days for adults of all ages and fitness levels.
Giving4Grassroots is a program aimed at increasing participation in grassroots and community sport throughout Australia.
Australian Sports Foundation chief executive Patrick Walker said the grant will fund programs that encourage more adults to experience positive health and social benefits of lacrosse.
“Bayswater Lacrosse Club’s initiative stood out among the 500 grant applications we received and we look forward to more local adults participating in lacrosse soon,” he said.
“Sport plays a significant role in bringing communities together and help us live more active and social lives. Consequently, they will become positive and healthy role models for children.”
