Growing Cricket For Girls Funding – Applications closing soon

This morning saw the WBBL fixture announced which included the exciting news that the CitiPower Centre (Junction Oval) will host 6 matches, including the opening weekend. The popularity of female cricket continues to rise, and Cricket Victoria are investing in female participation at the grass roots, looking to clubs and associations to apply for Growing Cricket for Girls grant funding.

The Growing Cricket for Girls (GCG) Fund is designed to support the growth and development of girls competitions at a community cricket level across Australia, and has made a significant impact on female participation over the past 2 years. The funding provides increased opportunities for girls to get involved in cricket and to experience a friendly and inclusive environment, which is in line with Cricket Victoria’s strategy.

The seed funding saw 137 Victorian clubs and associations awarded funding to develop Girls Cricket within their region in the 2017/18 season, and we’re looking to help more Clubs and Associations for the upcoming season.

The GCG funding is aimed at supporting community cricket associations, cricket clubs and school sporting associations to develop new girls’ competitions and grow established competitions to encourage girls to play cricket.

  • Funding can be used for a range of purposes including;
  • Competition Coordinator to run the competition, including the fixture, ground allocation, umpire management and support female cricket on the Association Committee.
  • Purchase of match equipment, including: rebound stumps, markers and boundary cones to be used by teams in the competition.
  • Umpire payments.
  • Local area marketing and promotion of the competition using approved marketing materials
  • Team kits, including appropriate and compliant equipment for each team e.g. pads, gloves, helmets and wicket keeping gloves.
