Club Development Incentive Scheme
The Club Development Incentive Scheme encourages sustainable club practices. It incentivizes businesses and funding bodies to consider a club's application for support, as well as provides a small monetary contribution to successful club applicants.
Presently the Scheme is resourced to provide five clubs with financial support, and the City aims to increase the support available.
The Scheme is open to clubs which meet set governance, management and administration criteria. Beyond financial support, successful applicants receive:
- certificate and supporting documentation to use when submitting funding applications and sponsorship proposals, which are valid for 12 months.
- automatic nomination into the Community Sports Awards Club of the Year award for the corresponding calendar year.
- up to $300 worth of City light tokens or court/oval fees to be used in a 12-month period.
- up to $300 to put towards conducting coaching or officiating courses in the City of Karratha in a 12-month period.
Read the Incentive Scheme Criteria and Information for Clubs/Associations for more information on the Scheme.
