The Chadstone Lacrosse Club has celebrated its 50th year, and the ultimate goal for this project is to greatly increase the number of players and members. A larger club is a more viable club both on and off the field.
Value to the Community
The Club is an important outlet for the local community, both from a sporting and a social perspective. The Club's importance from both perspectives is demonstrated by the recent increase in the number of players, as well as the increase in the number of spectators at recent games. The Club's importance can also be demonstrated by the increasing attendance at recent club functions.
Why the funds are needed
Experience has shown that the best way to increase numbers is to start with a large base of junior male and female players. It is important to have both male and female players within the Club as this significantly improves the member retention rate particularly during adolescent years. Social interraction and functions become very important. The school coaching in conjunction with the LaxStar program is a new initiative by the Club which has committed approximately 16 Level 1 coaches to this project. To date results are very encouraging. The influx of new junior players will require significant management, equipment and uniforms. These resources are beyond the normal amount the Club holds in stock. The grant will provide new uniforms for new players in a new competition. Like all amateur clubs, finances are limited. A grant for uniforms will mean fund raising from the usual means can be directed to expenditure elsewhere.
