Kalkee Netball Club is part of the Kalkee Football and Netball Club located approximately 16kms from Horsham in regional Victoria, and is affiliated with the Horsham and District Football Netball League. The Kalkee Netball club was established in 1966 and became incorporated with the Football Club in 1997. The netball club fields four senior and three junior teams on a weekly basis throughout the season, as well as providing the developmental netball program NET SET GO. Along with the umpiring, scoring, timekeeping, coaches and first aid personnel, this equates to approximately 100 participates in the netball aspect of the club on any given weekend.
Value to the Community
Kalkee Netball Club prides itself on welcoming families, especially at the junior level, and encourages players to learn and show continued participation in the sport of netball. Along with the football club, this allows the entire family to enjoy the associated friendships, health, wellbeing and discipline that participation in sport provides. Within the local community this has the flow-on effect of fostering healthy lifestyles, social networks and combats the isolation and boredom that can develop in regional communities.
Why the funds are needed
If this application is successful, this grant would be used to purchase an appropriate, easy-to-use first aid kit to be used during netball games. On a weekly basis there is a requirement for each netball team to provide a nominated primary carer (first aider) for each game. To ensure this person can fulfil their duties they require an accessible first aid kit that is stocked with appropriate first aid equipment. Currently Kalkee Netball Club utilizes an old sewing kit as a first aid bag. Although stocked with first aid equipment, it does not provide the necessary compartments or space to ensure first aid equipment is easy to find when needed and it becomes increasingly messy, making it hard to determine what requires restocking. This grant would allow the purchase of a suitable complete first aid kit, along with additional first aid equipment to ensure the primary carer can provide appropriate and timely treatment at the courtside.
