Equipment upgrades afoot thanks to Greater funding

Forster Tuncurry Junior Rugby League Football Club is planning to upgrade training equipment and to help cover the cost of the end of year presentation, thanks to its success in the Greater Bank’s #GreaterMidNorthCoast Community Funding Program.

Forster Tuncurry Junior Rugby League Football Club receives $2,000 for taking out the public vote in the May round of the program, with DeadlyScience and Hallidays Point Pickleball Club receiving $500 each as our monthly runners-up.

Forster Tuncurry Junior Rugby League Football Club is the only rugby league club within the local community and gives girls and boys aged from 5 to 17 the opportunity to play rugby league, both contact and non-contact.

The Club’s Sponsorship Coordinator, Kirrily Cloak, said player participation and retention across all ages is their key focus.

“Our club aims to get more kids involved in rugby league, improve health and social outcomes of participants, provide more opportunities for girls to be involved in the game, and provide a safe
training and playing environment.

“We also work to ensure our coaching staff have the skills and knowledge to share with players so they can reach their personal best, ensure player selection is fair and equitable so everyone gets time on the field and, most importantly, that kids have fun and enjoy playing rugby league.

“We’re looking to upgrade some of our training equipment, put some money towards our end of year presentation and potentially upgrade our PA system, so this money from Greater Bank is extremely welcome.”

“As well as getting them moving and improving their fitness, sport teaches kids about teamwork and resilience which are incredibly important skills for other parts of life,” Jennifer said.

“While congratulations must go to Forster Tuncurry Junior Rugby League Football Club on its success, I must make special mention of Hallidays Point Pickleball Club which amassed over 15,000 votes in just three and a half weeks of voting – a fantastic effort from a small
