Cowra Amateur Swimming Club Gets Funding For Timing System

Written by: The Cowra Phoenix


The Cowra Amateur Swimming Club will benefit from a $5000 grant to purchase a new timing system courtesy of the NSW Government Local Sport Grant Program. The club was awarded the funds to purchase a ‘Wylas’ swim timing system, and was one of nine local sport organisations within the Cootamundra electorate to be successful in receiving a share of $50,000 in funding.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the grants would help local clubs to get more people involved in sports.

“Sport is a way of life in our country communities, with each local town and village having a strong presence in the pool, on the court, and on the field,” Ms Cooke said. “These grants provide essential funds to our local clubs for programs, equipment and facilities that will enable more people of all ages and abilities to participate in sport.”

Minister for Tourism and Sport Stuart Ayres said bringing communities together through sport provided many social, heath and economic benefits.

“Getting together with teammates on a weekend or mid-week to play sport is so important for our physical and mental health,” Mr Ayres said. “With community sporting competitions returning to normal following two pandemic-affected seasons, these grants will support both people returning to sport and those participating for the first time.” Grants up to $20,000 were available under the program with up to $50,000 available in each electorate.
