Nominate your club or recreation group for the Whitehorse Sport and Recreation Australia Day Trophy. This is a great opportunity to recognise your club for the outstanding contribution they have made to the Whitehorse community. Winners will be presented with a trophy at the Whitehorse Australia Day Celebrations on 26 January 2018 and will appear in an article in the Whitehorse News, Council's monthly newsletter.
There are many ways for a sporting club or recreation group to become nominated for the Whitehorse Sport and Recreation Australia Day Trophy – from fundraising and charity work to giving disadvantaged groups in the community an opportunity to become involved within community sporting clubs or groups. These efforts have a positive effect on the community and help to improve the Whitehorse community as a whole.
The Eastern Gymnastics Club was recognised in 2017 for its contribution to the Whitehorse community. The not-for-profit organisation focussed on further developing its status as an Inclusive Leader Club and providing customised gymnastics programs for members of the community who previously may not have been able to participate, such as those on the autism spectrum. Among its coaches, the club employs a senior coach with severe hearing loss, a coach with Down’s syndrome and two other coaches with Asperger’s Syndrome. Eastern Gymnastics Club has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, true to its goal of providing “a friendly and supportive club for all”.
Other successful applicants include Blackburn Junior Football Club for conducting a range of community and club programs, and the Box Hill Miniature Steam Railway Society. This group hosts four charity run days each year with community members coming out in force to support, enjoy and celebrate the activities.
