Stride into Sport

Sport North East is excited to be working together with Regional Sport Victoria (RSV) to bring back our popular Stride into Sport campaign ahead of the upcoming winter sporting season. The campaign, which first commenced 18 months ago, is designed to help our sporting clubs boost player, volunteer, coach, and umpire/official registrations. 

We know how difficult it has been for our local clubs and for State Sporting Organisations to attract mass numbers back into the fold since COVID-19, and the program has grown to help shine a light on local opportunities. That’s why we are teaming up with several new and previous Victorian sports to help you all #strideintosport over the coming months and get active within your community. 

We encourage clubs and associations in our region to contact us with any upcoming registration days and information regarding any and all sporting opportunities for the winter season of sport ahead.

“We are excited to be part of another strong campaign celebrating the many benefits of winter sport and recreation for players, volunteers and officials. There are so many awesome programs across our regional area and we hope more Victorians will be inspired to get involved” 

The 2024 Stride into Sport winter campaign will have a particular focus on promoting volunteers to return to sport, made possible through a grant jointly funded by the Australian and Victorian governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements. 

“There are so many ways to get involved in winter sport and active recreation, whether it be on the field or volunteering behind the scenes,” RSV Executive Officer Meghan Mayman said. “Stride into Sport shines a light on these opportunities and the many benefits of being part of your local club. Thank you to Sport North East and participating SSAs for helping us inspire more Victorians to take the next strides into sport.”
